Hello, dear readers! Today’s guest is Debra-Ann Kummoung, who is here for the first time with an excerpt from her Pride and Prejudice variation, Falling for Elizabeth Bennet, and a very generous giveaway. I do hope you enjoy the excerpt; Debra-Ann provided me with a few, and I really thought this one would grab your attention! Please give her a warm welcome:

Hello! First of all, I would like to give a big thank you to Anna for having on her website/blog — Diary of an Eccentric, it is a pleasure to be here. We all know and love Pride and Prejudice and we each of us imagine Darcy and Elizabeth in our own unique ways. I have read many variations of Pride and Prejudice but I wanted to do something different, something that had not been done before. What if it was not pride or class or family that kept Darcy and Elizabeth apart? In my book Falling for Elizabeth Bennet, Elizabeth has a health condition. The big question is, will Darcy turn away from Elizabeth or will he still love her? This is my debut novel and one that comes from the heart.

I would also like to recognize my husband, Jeff, who has supported this book and has believed in me and is the inspiration for Darcy in my book.

After a few moments, Darcy looks up at Wickham with tears in his eyes, and his voice thick with emotion. “Wickham, where is my wife?” Wickham replies in a hushed whisper, “Bedlam.” Darcy and Richard both gasp in horror. Wickham asks, “Darcy, who is your wife?” Darcy looks at Wickham in surprise. “Wickham, you know my wife. You met her in Hertfordshire. She is the former Miss Elizabeth Bennet.” Darcy and Richard watch as Wickham’s mouth drops in shock and horror, and re replies, “Darcy, I would never have recognized Miss Elizabeth.”

About the Author

Debra-Ann Kummoung

I am a first time author. I love Pride and Prejudice and fell in love the 1995 mini-series. I read Pride and Prejudice in high school and fell in love with Mr. Darcy back then. Life continued and I forgot about Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet until I happened to see the mini-series on TV and decided to revisit the book and then discovered all the variations out there. I decided that I could write a book and as I was writing the plot for Falling for Elizabeth Bennet, I discovered that I had married my own Mr. Darcy who also has a dash of Colonel Fitzwilliam too!

By day, I am an Executive Assistant and by evening I plot what can next befall Darcy and Elizabeth. I am currently working on my next book.

My husband and I are raising our 3 German Shepherds — Belle a white shepherd, Jasmine a black shepherd and Fitz our newest family member, a sable shepherd.
