Jane Austen was a novelist. She wrote romantic fiction and was the author of Sense & Sensibility, Pride & Prejudice, Mansfield Park, and Emma. She also wrote two novels that were published posthumously in 1818: Northanger Abbey and Persuasion. She began a third, which was eventually called Sandition but she died before it was complete.
