I was browsing on Amazon this morning when I noticed that Captain Wentworth's Diary is now available for pre-order - it will be out June 2007.
Writing Captain Wentworth's Diary was a brilliant experience and I enjoyed every minute of it. I'd always wondered what happened the first time Anne and Wentworth met, in 1806. Where did they meet? How did it happen? Was it at a ball, at dinner, on a picnic or in the village? What did they think of each other? And what exactly happened?
When I came to write Captain Wentworth's Diary, I decided to try and answer those questions by writing what is in effect a prequel to Persuasion as the first part of Captain Wentworth's Diary. I'm really looking forward to finding out what readers think of it!
