Author has written 33 stories for Pride and Prejudice.

I chose the author name Astonishment because Jane Austen used it multiple times in her stories (as in "I am all astonishment!") I wanted something, not so obvious, that reminded me of her.

I'm currently obsessed with Pride and Prejudice, the book and the 2005 movie. I started out just reading the stories submitted to fanfiction.net and was inspired by the lovely and sometimes crazy stories I found. I've written a few stories, have a few more in progress and have plans for several more.

My stories lean more to the romantic and/or humorous side, but I also have some serious themes, inspired by the authors and stories in my favorites.

If you are interested in reading regency era romances, please look into Georgette Heyer's books (1902 - 1974). Her writing is exquisite! I have read all of her regency romance books and have so many favorites it would be impossible to name just one. The Black Sheep, The Nonesuch, Cotillion, Arabella, Venetia, Frederica, and Faro's Daughter are just a few of her books that I have read multiple times.

Thank you all for reading and reviewing my stories. Your encouragement and comments are always appreciated.

My Work-In-Progress Stories:

July 23, 2016: I have been planning Affectionate Hearts for over a year and I'm very happy to post the first chapter. This will be another novella length story about Georgiana and Wickham's elopement scheme, with a twist -- George is able to get her out of Ramsgate and travel north with his accomplice Mrs. Young. Both ne'er-do-wells have back stories and they are a bit smarmier than the original. Elizabeth meets Darcy under different circumstances and I hope you will love the story!

June 26, 2016: With the encouragement of several followers, I have decided to publish another collection of short stories including This Never Happened Before, Error in Judgement and Rondeau. They all need tons of work to make them presentable but I hope to have them ready to post to amazon in July 2016. Thank you to everyone who private messaged me about my older stories.

June 19, 2016: My novella, Darcy's Big Wish, is now finished. It began as a fun idea, meant mostly for laughs, and turned into an alternate Hunsford-style moment for Darcy, where Elizabeth also learns of her flaws. Thank you to everyone who read and reviewed this story. I will be sending the draft to the editor for her expert services and publishing as soon as I finish polishing it up. My next story is already in the works, another novella about an infant engagement.

May 22, 2016: As previously announced, I have removed the full Colonel Fitzwilliam story from this site, leaving only a preview. The manuscript is being professionally edited and will be published as an e-book in autumn 2016, under a new title. Please Note: It is not my intention to disappoint or offend anyone. As a writer, I must protect my intellectual property. As soon as the book is available, I will update this page. Thank you for your tremendous and unfailing support of my stories! In the meantime, Darcy's Big Wish is my current project.

April 16: 2016: I am planning a third book in the same series with Tempt You to Accept Me and Colonel Fitzwilliam. #3 will be the continuation of Geneva Hawthorne and Wentworth Locke's romance, plus Bartholomew Hawthorne will have a love interest. It will have all my own characters so it will not be a Pride and Prejudice variation. I will try to set up a blog page to keep you informed of the progress. Until then, I have a few more Darcy-Elizabeth stories in the works.

January 17, 2016: It helps me to write a character, if I can visualize what they look like. Imagine, if you will, that my Colonel Fitzwilliam story is scooped up by a Hollywood producer and made into a movie. (Hey, I can dream, can't I?) Here is the cast of my imaginary movie -- just for fun!

Emily Blunt (age 29) as Augusta Hawthorne. (She starts out dowdy with her modest style and mob-caps but then transforms to her gorgeous self.)

  1. For an image of Augusta’s gown on Twelfth Night, please search Pinterest for this picture: Bandeau de Ruban d'Or, Corbeille des Fleurs
  2. For an image of Augusta’s hair on Twelfth Night, please search Pinterest for this picture: Emily Blunt braided bun
  3. I imagine Richard's attire on Twelfth Night as pictured on Candace Hern's Regency World. Search for Evening Full Dress February 1807. His mother would wear the pictured ruby gown with a fillet turban of the same color.

Nathan Fillion (age 30) as Colonel Richard Fitzwilliam. (Yes, I know he is American and older now, but this is my movie, so... I've always imagined the Colonel as a cheeky character, similar to Richard Castle.)

Madison Davenport (age 18) as Geneva Hawthorne. (Gorgeous! Incomparable!)

Joseph Fiennes (age 36) as Bartholomew Hawthorne. (Yes, everyone in this movie is gorgeous!)

Emma Thompson as Lady Matlock. (Imagine the final scene of Nanny McPhee when she is beautiful!)

Robert Daws as Lord Matlock.

Tom Hiddleston as Piers Drummond. (Handsome, wealthy and hopelessly dull)

Max Irons as Jerome Boynton. (age 23, the fortune hunter)

Tom Felton as Roland Fenton. (age 20, the infatuated puppy)

Nicholas Hoult as Wentworth Locke. (age 20, the young swain who fancies himself as Geneva's champion)

Matthew Lewis as Marcus Grantley (age 21, the family friend)

Eric Dane as Peter Montgomery. (Another gorgeous American)

Keri Russell as Esther Montgomery. (Ditto)

Betty White (age 56) as Mrs. Simsbury, Esther's mother. (How fun would that be?)

Glenn Close as Mrs. Ashford. (Lady Matlock's dear friend)

Anna Chancellor as Mrs. Trout.

For Private Jonathan Jenkins, do a search on "Beaux, Ballrooms and Battles". The guy on the cover of that book is my Jenkins.

Can you imagine them in this story?


March 13, 2016: For more historical fiction on the Siege of Badajoz 1812, please consider "The Spanish Bride" by Georgette Heyer and "Sharpe’s Company" by Bernard Cornwell.


Piracy Warning:

July 25, 2015: Two writers on this site (PemberlyFan and Nem Tudom) have had their works-in-progress stolen from FFN and published under two different pen-names. Amazon was alerted and the two books have been removed. Please avoid any P&P variations written by "Emma Lee" or "Amanda Foley."
