Karen Wasylowski is a retired CPA, living in Florida with her husband, Richie, and their dogs, Darcy and Alfred.

The idea for Darcy and Fitzwilliam came to her while watching the 1995 movie of Pride and Prejudice. She even remembers the moment – it was during the dinner table scene at Aunt Catherine’s lovely Rosings Park. She is grilling Elizabeth about her family and suddenly Darcy is darting his gaze from his aunt to Elizabeth, appearing ready to slink under the table. Then he looks across at his cousin, Colonel Fitzwilliam, who gifts him with a smirk and a barely suppressed laugh. She remembers thinking to herself, “How typical of brothers – each enjoying the discomfort of the other.” Sons and Daughters is a sequel to Darcy and Fitzwilliam, and the direct result of having those two gentlemen now firmly entrenched in her head, voices demanding that she write about their children.

Released on St. Valentine’s Day was Book III to Darcy and Fitzwilliam, entitled WIVES AND LOVERS. My dear friends, Darcy and Fitzwilliam, are growing older now, but still are handsome, wise and funny. Their grown children are giving them headaches, however – involved with romance, children and the insanity of love.
