Short biography
After years of writing for the ad worlds for brands such as Diet Coke and Johnnie Walker, Karen Doornebos switched to tea with her debut, Definitely Not Mr. Darcy. Living and working in London inspired the book, but the reality of life in a Chicago suburb with her husband, Jacques, two children, Remy and Samantha, and various pets provided the opportunity to write it. As an English literature graduate of the University of Wisconsin--Madison, she was thrilled to be quoted in a British Heritage magazine article about the Jane Austen Society of North America's Annual General Meeting, which she attended in a floor-length gown with a square-cut bodice. Appreciative of the benefits that above-the-elbow gloved offer, she has since become a lifelong member of the Jane Austen Society of North America. [adapted from Definitely Not Mr. Darcy (2011)]
