Question Help with Calibre

I'm trying to set up Calibre to import the metadata on my files. As an example, I have a file that is labeled as:

Mary Janice Davidson - Queen Betsy 05 - Undead and Unwed

My current metadata set up is:

(?P<author>[^_]+) - (?P<title>.+)

And when I test/import the book, I get:

Title - Undead and
Author - Mary Janice Davidson - Queen Betsy 05

Instead, I would like to see:

Title - Queen Betsy 05 - Undead and Unwed
Author - Mary Janice Davidson

Can anyone tell me how to rearrange the Python script to import files in the metadata set up I would like to see?

Thanks in advance for your help!
