|Favorite that isn't P&P:||Pride & Prejudice|
|Favorite JA adaptation:||P&P2 (1995)|
In my fifth decade, I was introduced to Jane Austen by, oddly enough, the Keira Knightley version of Pride and Prejudice; since then Austenís works have consumed much of my free time. Reading one of the companion series to Pride and Prejudice, I was sufficiently unsatisfied to attempt my own. Now in my sixth decade, my interest remains undiminished.
When not reading JA or writing, I teach fencing and karate, and polish samurai swords. I have a Ph.D. in neurochemistry, a couple of Bachelor degrees, and an abiding love of literature.
