Laurie Viera Riglerís novels Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict and Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict could have been considered semi-autobiographical had they not involved time travel and body switching. Her short story Intolerable Stupidity, in which Mr. Darcy brings charges against all the writers of Pride and Prejudice sequels, spin-offs and retellings, appears in the anthology Jane Austen Made Me Do It (Ballantine). In addition to having three more novels in the works, including the third in her Austen Addict series, Laurie is the creator of the web series Sex and the Austen Girl, all 23 episodes of which can be found on her online home, A longtime resident of the very same Echo Park / Silverlake neighborhood in Los Angeles in which Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict is set, Laurie now lives nearby in Pasadena, California with her filmmaker husband and their cat.
