Bio:

Hello! I'm a transplanted Floridian with a husband, two beautiful children, and an assortment of pets that would impress the great, late Steve Irwin. I love to read, write, go to the movies, tinker with my camera, and enjoy watersports of any kind. I'm also a teensy bit musically inclined and enjoy song fics a lot more than I should. When I'm not writing, you might just find me singing in the shower.


I first came to the Twilight Saga in 2009 when a neighbor insisted I read the series. We went to their house Halloween night for trick-or-treating, and while my kids walked away with some candy, I walked away with the gift of Twilight. My journey into fanfiction started shortly after that when I'd read, re-read, and re-read again, only to discover that I still wanted more. A Google search led me to RamblingsandThoughts.com where several of the authors featured also had fanfiction accounts. Eventually, I started writing my own stories and they are, for the most part, canon or canon-based AUs. It was my goal (and still is) to keep the characters as true to the way they were originally written as I can, but they can and do waver from time to time. However, pairings will always be canon.


After years of resistance, I made the leap into All-Human stories. These are generally ideas or episodes that I've had running around in my head for years and needed an outlet for. They are not at all canon, and as such are not necessarily meant for a younger audience. Please take note of ratings. Oh, and if in doubt, I tend to rate on the high side rather than mark something inappropriately.


I have been blessed with the wonderful support of my pre-reader, Farawaymomo, and betas, Katmom, Linguist279, SueBee and JazzGirl. All are awesome women who agreed to take me on mid-story and have become good friends. I've also been blessed with so many encouraging words and suggestions from fellow writers, B'ella C'ella Luna, U2Shay, LJ Summers, SydneyAlice, Lissa Bryan and my friends over at the Twilight Lexicon. Thank you all so much! oxoxo
