Abigail Reynolds may be a nationally bestselling author and a physician, but she can’t follow a straight line with a ruler. Originally from upstate New York, she studied Russian and theater at Bryn Mawr College and marine biology at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole. After a stint in performing arts administration, she decided to attend medical school, and took up writing as a way to retain her sanity during her years as a physician in private practice.

A life-long lover of Jane Austen’s novels, Abigail began writing variations on Pride & Prejudice in 2001, then expanded her repertoire to include a series of novels set on her beloved Cape Cod. Her most recent releases are Spellbound at Pemberley, The Price of Pride, A Matter of Honor, and Mr. Darcy’s EnchantmentHer books have been translated into seven languages. She lives on Cape Cod with her family and a menagerie of cats who rule the roost. Her hobbies do not include sleeping or cleaning her house.
