Frances Duncan is a proud Austenite. Most of her books are modern interpretations of Austen, some you’ll need to delve a little deeper to find parts inspired by Jane Austen.

In 2014 Frances held the first meeting of what would become the The Jane Austen Society of New Zealand. You can view all upcoming events for the society on Eventbrite (online or in Wellington).Francescommission6

Frances hosts a podcast called The Amateur Austenite which posts every week discussing Jane Austen chapter by chapter. Listen to the podcast on Google, Stitcher, Spotify, ITunes and Buzzsprout. The podcast has featured Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, Mansfield Park and reality TV show The Courtship.

You can support the podcast (listen early!) and the society on ko-fi.

If you’d like to discuss an Austen novel one-on-one you can book a session.
