Author has written 2 stories for Pride and Prejudice.

Hello! Glad to see you here - I love peeking at people's profiles - I learn so much!

My pen name, "Artemis Acorn" is in fact, a clue as to my real identity, which really isn't a secret anymore now that my name is on the front cover of my book - which YOU, all my wonderful FFN friends, helped convinced me to publish. The translation from my pen name to my real-world name is a mathematical formula equal to or less than the original. It has no magical reference - it is all mythical. Once you figure it out, you will say it was too obvious!

I love Jane Austen's works in particular, but enjoy reading anything that is interesting, enlightening, thought provoking, or informative and especially that which is romantic.

A bit about me:

I am happily married with three grown children, and as of November 2014, this Nana has 4 precious little ones to dote on.

I live in a beautiful valley in the western region of the United States, surrounded by rugged, spectacular mountains with snow-covered peaks. I am moved by nature, by the sky, by water, by the rustling of wind in the trees. I want to wrap myself up in it and soak it up through my pores. I tried doing that once, but it was incredibly dirty so I stopped.

I am particularly fascinated by lenticular clouds. If you don't know what that is, Google it and prepare to be amazed!

I have dabbled in many hobbies and pursuits, but it is only writing that I continually come back to, although I sometimes have long dry spells where I write nothing at all.

I finally left the USA for the first time in October 2012 - I went on a cruise. I loved it. We went to Mexico and explored the ruins at Chitzen Itza and left a lot of US dollars in the hands of people who were charging way too much for their goods - I didn't mind though. My life has been very blessed and I think spreading a little of the bounty around is a good thing. One of my favorite purchases is way out of date now, but will always be good for conversation. It is a Mayan Calendar - you know - the one that "ended" in December 2012? We're all still here and kickin', so now, in addition to saying I survived Y2K, I claim bragging rights to coming out of the Mayan apocalypse intact.

The continuation of "One Thread Pulled", Constant as the Sun is now posting. It will cover the period after Jane & Bingley's wedding up to Darcy and Elizabeth's wedding day. It will feature the much loved cast from OTP, and explore the ongoing courtship of Darcy and Elizabeth post engagement, Mary/Mr. Timmons, Anne de Bourgh / Mr. Fellows, Caroline Bingley and (to be revealed), the reformation of Lydia and Kitty. Other characters will include Georgiana, Fitzwilliam, Catherine de Bourgh, Mr & Mrs Bennet and the newlyweds, the Bingleys. If that isn't enough for you, there will be some awesome original characters and the Gardiners. We'll spend some time in London, Meryton and Derbyshire too. So check back - I promise some fluff, some antics and some conflict, though not necessarily in that order.
