Author has written 1 story for Jane Eyre.

I'm a college graduate (my major was English Literature) and I live in the U.S. I love, love, love to read, especially 18th and 19th century British novels (and especially Jane Austen and the Brontes). My favorite book is "Jane Eyre," of course, which is why I enjoy reading all the great fanfiction on this site and finally started writing my own little story. Actually, this is the first story I've written since grammar school!

My other major interest is travel; I've traveled extensively throughout Europe for the past twenty years and last year finally went to Egypt and Jordan, which has long been a dream of mine.

As for movies: I love action/adventure/fantasy (all the "Star Wars" movies, the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, the "Matrix" trilogy, "Superman Returns," "Batman Begins," old Jackie Chan movies, etc.) as well as movies based on novels ("Sense and Sensibility," "Emma," "Pride & Prejudice," "The Remains of the Day") and all the great Merchant Ivory movies.

Television: I love well-written drama and crime ("Lost," "House," "Bones," "Numbers," "24," "MI-5"), quirky comedies ("My Name is Earl," "Monk," "Psych") and all the great British shows on PBS on Mystery! and Masterpiece Theatre. I also follow two soap operas (!) - "All My Children" and "One Life to Live." They're both really good right now!

I'm currently trying to learn how to play the violin, and, like Jane, can play the piano "a little."

And as for my pen name, RhubarbsMom - I have a wonderful little cat named Rhubarb.
