I am a writer and teacher originally from Long Beach, California. I began writing late in life, but once I let the writer in me out, I haven't looked back!

Despite a small publishing hic-up, The Delany Bennets had two

Thanks for all who attended and my wonderful friends for their help and support!
'A wonderfully original take on a Jane Austen classic - just perfect for a Pride and Prejudice fan like me. Likeable, believable characters in high-stakes circumstances that had me cheering for the Bennet family right from the start. Kannel's writing style is sophisticated and witty, an absolute pleasure to read. Can't wait to read her next book!' -
