Author has written 13 stories for Pride and Prejudice.

I am a high school science teacher at a public school in Arizona. I have two kids and a loving husband. While I never thought about writing anything, I found that I love P&P (and have loved it for many years), and discovered fanfiction a few years ago. I long to read new stories, but, most of the time, when I read a new book, I think "that would not have happened like that." Finally, I decided I should try writing my versions. Putting ideas on paper is harder than I thought. I am a logical thinker, and don't like to fluff my writing to sound more fanciful. I also tend to be more of a "this happened, then the other thing happened" type of writer. Hopefully, you like it.

The hyperlinks are also not working, as they are just redirecting here, even though they work on my end. If you want to find my books, go to amazon or nook and search for my name, Lorraine Hetschel, and you will find me and only me. That is where you can find my books. Trust me, my name is unique enough for this to work.

Keep an eye for my new stories. They will all be fully published here before being taken down for publication. I want you to read it here for free, you just have to pay attention. Also, I am a very slow writer. Sorry for long breaks between updates.

Modern Pride and Prejudice reviews
Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice has fueled our imaginations for 200 years, but the story is outdated because times have changed. How would our characters act in a modern setting. Not everyone is up with the times. Warning: mentions of past rape and some heated situations. In this story, I have modernized situations while keeping the characters canon where possible.
