Raymond Crane, author,

A note concerning my two volume novel, Palma de Mallorca Mystique  - 

One may compare my writings with that of Jane Austin, after all we are both Romance writers.

The comparison is short for as Jane Austin is a great apologist for the newly arrived middle-classes, as pictured in her portrayals of professional males, doctors, lawyers, and sea-men although the latter had to be Admirals to figure in her stories, I accept fiction writers, political researchers, film directors, and fashion designers as though they were just the latest thing, in every way respectable. Whereas Jane Austin would feel that many of her characters may not meet the mark of respectability, that is, as members of the nobility, my characters are as they are, take them or respect them, they are what they at first appear to be. I am after all writing in a new age, and despite the respect given to Jane Austin I demand just a little respect for portraying characters that are all of our current time.

Thanx – Raymond Crane
