You are

Jane Austen

Why?

Each block of highlighted text is an anagram (or two) of a Jane Austen novel:
- Mansfield Park
- Northanger Abbey
- Persuasion
- Sense and Sensibility
- Pride and Prejudice
- Emma

And for the title (credit to @Prim3numbah for pointing out what I missed):

Austen isn't quite like Austin (Texas)
