Author has written 4 stories for Downton Abbey.

About me: I'm an incurable romantic, a voracious reader, an aspiring writer and a devotee of period drama. I have recently become scarily obsessed with Downton Abbey and this site helps to feed my passion. Thanks to everyone who writes such superb stories about the marvellous characters created by Julian Fellowes - I am blown away by the quality of the writing and the tremendous effort people put in. It is encouraging me to try my hand at writing, which I find really enjoyable but enormously challenging.
