C is best.
I find heavy and awkward other constructions, such as "being...and born" in A.

C is best. The opening modifying phrase properly modifies the Proper Noun (the name of the author) and 'she' could only modify the author.

Please do underline the sentence. I suppose it's not too much to ask of you to highlight the underlined portion of the sentence, and click on the underline icon. :-D
