Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Belén Paccagnella discovered the Jane Austen fanfiction world after watching the 1995 BBC miniseries. In her teens, she lived in Brazil, when her family moved to the city of Curitiba due to her father’s work. She moved back to Buenos Aires a few years later, where she studied agronomy but finally pursued a different career and started working in the development and administration of shopping centers.

In 2001 she started writing both Regency and modern stories adapted from the Pride and Prejudice storyline, merging drama, humor, and adventure while creating characters with unique traits.

Belén still lives in the suburbs of Buenos Aires, where she shares her home with her daughter and her pets, while spending her time working, reading and writing.


Obstacles is her first book.
