Author has written 7 stories for Pride and Prejudice.

Yes, that's Darcy with Vulcan ears! My name's Michele. I'm an African American woman on the far side of middle age, who's been a Star Trek fan for over 50 years and a Jane Austen fan for at least 40. Enough said!

I have a sister who also loves to write. Her pen name is Botsey, and she has authored stories for both fandoms. Check her out!

A Man of Industry and Action by leavesfallingup reviews
I have wondered what might have gone different if Mr. Bennet was the landowner, the husband, and the father that he should have been. In this story strong advice from a valued mentor early in his marriage sets a new course for Thomas Bennet and impacts the entire Bennet family in a positive way.

In Search of Happiness by headless-nic reviews
Tired and disillusioned by society, Mr Darcy decides to take a vacation, but most certainly not of the kind one would expect from a man of his consequence. No, to avoid turning bitter he decides it's time for a change and a drastic one. What he has not counted on is, that in doing so he could lose his heart. Now back!

Something Sweet by Laure001 reviews
For Valentine's Day! In the book... Darcy and Bingley are back in Hertfordshire; Mrs. Bennet invites them both for dinner. Elizabeth would love to speak to Darcy, but our heroes are both shy and embarrassed. The next day Darcy leaves for London, persuaded of Elizabeth's indifference, and the happy ending is significantly delayed. What if Elizabeth had been a little bit bolder?

A Good Memory Would Be Unpardonable by MorticiaYouSpokeFrench reviews
Elizabeth Bennet is widely acknowledged to be an intelligent young woman and a witty conversationalist. However, she does tend to be quite... absentminded. Absentminded enough to forget she had been insulted by a gentleman within ten minutes of hearing the insult. In a universe where Elizabeth is a bit of a space cadet, how do out dear couple fare?
