Cassandra Grafton dreamed of being a writer for many years, but it was a love for all things Jane Austen that eventually inspired her first novel. A Fair Prospect, a Pride & Prejudice-inspired Regency romance, was released in three volumes in 2013.
She then went on to be part of the co-writing team on The Darcy Brothers, another Austen-inspired historical novel, before settling down to co-write with one of her best friends.
The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen, a contemporary cosy mystery/romance, was released in July 2016 under the names of Ada Bright and Cass Grafton. Her most recent novel was A Quest for Mr Darcy, issued in June 2017.
A former college lecturer and PA, Cassandra has lived in three countries, and loves travelling, reading, cats and dry wine.
She has two grown up children and splits her time between Switzerland, where she lives with her husband, and England, where she lives with her characters.
She is a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association, the Society of Authors, the Jane Austen Society UK and is a founding member of the Jane Austen Society of Switzerland.
