Jane Austen

Jane Austen (16 December 1775 – 18 July 1817) was an English novelist. Born in Hampshire, she was sent to Oxford to be educated by Mrs Ann Cawley. After a bout of Typhus, she was home educated until she attended boarding school in Reading with her sister from early in 1785 at the Reading Abbey Girls' School. From the age of eleven, and perhaps earlier, Austen wrote poems and stories. Between 1793 and 1795 (aged eighteen to twenty) she wrote Lady Susan. Like most women authors at the time, she had to publish her books anonymously. She died in Winchester on 18 July 1817 at the age of 41. (Wikipedia)
