Bronwen Chisholm grew up in Central Pennsylvania, the youngest of four sisters by ten years. With such an age gap, she was left to her own imagination much of the time and, like Mr. Bennet, with a book she was regardless of time. She became an avid reader at a young age when she was introduced to the classics: Louisa May Alcott, the Bronte sisters, Gone With the Wind, and many others. (Amazingly, she was not introduced to the works of Jane Austen until years later, but she immediately immersed herself in everything Regency and Austen.) Her love of books and literature could have led her to a career as a librarian. Instead, life and love carried her to Virginia where she took a position as a state employee and began raising her family.
As her children grew and became involved in their own interests, Bronwen returned to the written word. No longer content to simply read it, she began writing. Though the first attempts ended up on a shelf, she would not be discouraged. Deciding to set aside her Suspense Romance for a time, she finally became a published author with her Pride and Prejudice Variations. Bronwen was thrilled with the acceptance of her first offerings. She takes great pleasure in searching for potential “plot twists” and finding the way back to a happy ending.
Writing has led her to several groups in her area, and she is currently serving as the Vice President of The Riverside Writers and heads up the Riverside Young Writers, mentoring our next generation.
