I am a British author who loves writing novels inspired by Jane Austen’s life and works. My books tell Jane Austen’s own story, as in the novels, Searching for Captain Wentworth, Project Darcy, and Jane Austen Lives Again, or continue the stories of Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility, as in the novels, Mr Darcy’s Secret, Willoughby’s Return, Lydia Bennet’s Story, and the novellas, Mr Darcy’s Christmas Calendar, and Mrs Darcy’s Diamonds.
I was born in Sutton Coldfield in the Midlands, England, and after studying for a degree in Birmingham I taught in the Midlands and London for some years before writing novels took over my life. I live in North London with my husband, children and two cats, but escape to “Fairyland”, Bath, whenever I can.

Odiwe certainly writes a page-turning romantic mystery - her characters are intriguing and her narrative full of surprises and suspense. She blends historical fact and fiction with great style, and the settings are spot on in what the writer describes as her "love letter to Bath."
