I’m Emma Darlington, an English author who writes QuickStep Guides for people who love books, travel and the arts
I love to travel and love literature and the arts, and decided to write Quickstep Guides for people who love to travel with a purpose in mind.
I love Jane Austen, and enjoy reading her books and finding out about her life. Living in the county of Hampshire where Jane was born and lived most of her life gives me insight into who she was as a person. I have also been lucky enough to have access to many of Jane’s treasures, old books and documents that relate to her and her family.
The Jane Austen Quickstep Travel Guide is coming out soon. It’s written for Jane Austen fans everywhere who want to travel to England to experience where Jane lived, shopped, danced and wrote her novels – and have fun doing it. Even from the comfort of their armchair.
Simple and easy to read, you can follow the walks around Jane’s villages, visit the towns where she lived and see what inspired her to write about such wonderful characters and stories.
No matter where you are in the world, I would love to hear from you, so please contact me if you want to know anything about Jane Austen or simply want to get in touch.
As Jane says, “Distance is nothing when one has a motive“.
