Jane Austen was born in 1775 at Steventon, Hampshire. She was the seventh child of the local rector and her life, by modern standards, was uneventful. She died at the age of forty-one, and is buried in Winchester Cathedral, which also contains a plaque in honor of her memory. Four of her novels were published anonymously in her lifetime; two more, one of which was Persuasion, appeared posthumously. Katherine Furman has written and edited a wide range of books, many of which reimagine classic texts. She loves to read English literature in the summer, Russian masterworks in the winter, and binge watch Netflix throughout the year. She lives with her husband and probably too many toy dinosaurs. Chuck Gonzales works in both the adult and children's sectors, creating characters, scenes, and masterful likenesses for books, advertising, animation, and editorial and always with at least a hint of humor. His work has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Entertainment Weekly, New York Magazine, Nickelodeon, and more. Chuck designed countless characters for Disney and Nickelodeon and wrote and illustrated a graphic novel for Scholastic called Oscar the Mighty.
