About Jen: Jen Hunt of the Booker Albert Literary Agency graduated from the University of Reno, Nevada, with an English literature degree and an unholy fascination with Victorian literature, although contrary to popular belief, she doesn't wear a corset. She does drink way too much coffee and enjoys watching the BBC. Another remake of a Jane Austen classic? Game on! Also happens to be a huge Bioware fangirl—when she has enough time for gaming.
