Jane Austen Fan Fiction
Our Volunteer Staff
ellenjp - Board of Directors & Pemberley Library
Ellen has been involved in JAFF since 2004, discovering Austens novels at the relatively advanced age of 58. (Better late than never!) Not owning a laptop, she began creating printable PDF versions of her favorite stories, so she could take Darcy to bed! She has been a board member since MLS incorporated in 2008.
Ellen has been owner, financial officer, IT guru and housekeeper for her graphic design business in central Virginia since 1993. In her infinitesimally brief, non-business hours, she helps authors prepare their books for publishing, drinks a bit of wine, reads the best fanfic in the universe, watches classic movies, tries to keep her husband straight, and sleeps!
gail_etc - AHA Root Admin
Gail discovered JAFF in 2005 and joined the MLS staff in December 2007. As a Root Admin she works hard keeping the board nice and clean.
Gail loves JAFF, loves JAFFers even more and loves writing her version of JAFF most of all. She writes to preserve what little sanity she has left - finding it to be cheap therapy (except for the times it threatens to rip her guts out instead).
gailw15 / AHA Root Admin
GailW fell in love with Jane Austen many years ago in High School but it wasnt until after her second viewing of P&P2 in 1998 that she discovered JAFF and has been hooked ever since! She joined the MLS staff in October of 2009 and is responsible for the member validation queue and assisting with other site maintenance.
Gail lives with her husband in Massachusetts, USA and has two grown children. She works part-time as the benefits manager of a Fortune 100 company and in her spare time loves to read, travel (especially to JAFF tea parties), camp and watch her beloved New England Patriots.
EmilynW - Board of Directors
Emilyn rediscovered dear Jane in 1999 after watching P&P2 at her best friends girls night. She began reading P&P every January until discovering JAFF in 2003. It took three years for her to de-lurk! If pressed, she will admit that Colin Firth is her favorite Mr. Darcy.
When shes not reading JAFF, she smothers her husband and two adult children with love while taking care of her 94-year-old father full-time. During stolen moments, youll find her scrapbooking, beading, trying out new recipes, and reviving her French. When its not raining, you might catch her out in the garden.
She joined the MLS Board in March 2010.

KC Derby - AHA Moderator
KC found JAFF in 2008 and started posting her first story at AHA later that year. She joined the MLS staff as a Moderator in March 2010.
KC lives on a 4-acre slice of Penn's Woods in central Pennsylvania with her husband and 2 dogs. They enjoy hiking, gardening and being beer snobs (OK, not the dogs so much on that last one). Mr. KC doesn't understand KC's Austen obsession, bu.t not everyone is perfect.
LoryL - Board of Directors
Lory discovered JAFF in 2004 as an avid reader then a year later as a tentative author. She joined MLS in November 2008 as a member of the board of directors.
Lory lives in Bucharest, Romania, with her dear husband, her dear daughter of 14 and her dear dog ( a French bulldog). She works as an Organizational Development Manager in a multinational company, and when she is not working ( which is very rare), she loves reading (Pride and Prejudice is the all time favorite), JAFF, going to the theatre and writing (JAFF, of course).
Lucyparker - Board of Directors
Terry cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, or the words which laid the foundation for her love of Miss Austen. It was too long ago. She was in the middle before she knew that she had begun. JAFF is her mothership, calling to her with both Regency and modern stories. A true story slag, Terry loves all authors who indulge her with mush, humor and adventure, tho she's usually behind the blue couch when a story gets dicey. She's a firm believer in HEA.
In RL Terry works with non-profits, is married and has one son. While Mr. LP and their heir are off doing whatever it is they do, you'll find Terry and her dear dogs, Lucy and Parker, reading "just for a few minutes more."
ladytrapper - AHA Moderator
Nancy came to her JAFF addiction sometime after the fiftieth time she read Pride and Prejudice and the kids learned to drive themselves. Although Pride and Prejudice is her favorite book of all time, Nancy's read everything Jane ever wrote. It just wasn't enough. Discovering the Republic of Pemberley's Bits of Ivory was an aha! moment. For years a dedicated lurker, the community here at AHA provided the impetus to have her share in the conversation.
Nancy has worked for the same supermarket chain for forty years, starting as an afterschool cashier at age sixteen. Married to her Trapperman since 1975, they have two grown children. They reside in the wilds of Northeast Ohio with their son and cats.
