Author has written 1 story for Twilight.
That Writr is in her early 30s, unfortunately single (although not, er, inexperienced), and an assistant professor at a small liberal arts college in a small town/suburb near Anchorage. She wants to be Toni Morrison when she grows up.
She has only one story and says of it:
I love Twilight despite the fact the books are full of purple prose and cliches. They're still great storytelling ... up till the last book, anyway. Let's just pretend that one didn't happen. Oh Stephenie, Breaking Dawn put a stake in my heart!
Anyway, I've read a lot of New Moon AUs set after Edward left Bella, and I've read several stories where Bella is in college or teaching. I've even read a few that tried to write Bella as disabled. A couple of these are pretty good. Others, however, well ... aren't. But instead of just bitching, I decided I should put my money where my mouth is. This is my own attempt.
The town and college described in the story are fictional. But otherwise, the details are pretty much taken from real life. I lived in North Georgia and I teach at a college much like "Dawes" (albeit not IN North Georgia).
I didn't figure Bella would be that all-fired pleased to see Edward again. Considering. Despite that, the story is -- eventually -- B/E.
PLEASE NOTE: For personal reasons (a ridiculously full teaching schedule and being put in charge of running a bi-annual local conference), I am no longer able to reply to reviews and questions! But, that said, I wanted to give a BIG THANK YOU to everybody for the wonderful feedback and kind words. They're appreciated and I do still check my messages now and then to read the comments. I just have too many to reply any more.
ON PDFs: A couple of people have asked if I have one ... no, I don't. I don't even have the files anymore. As noted above, I'm no longer active in fandom. Maybe somebody out there had a PDF of "Blink," but I don't know where it is. Sorry!
IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE HAS BEEN TRANSLATED INTO SPANISH! Ain't' it cool?! With many, many thanks to Lilia. I'm just so flattered and tickled!
You're more than welcome to come and join the discussion.
(yes, I know it's not the official release, but I thought that one looked too modern and rather cheap, honestly; this looks more antique, even if it is silver)
(c. 1915), , (actual gown is more forest than sage in color)
-- The one where Bella is being held isn't exactly the same but close -- it's a bit larger, and there's no rail beside the ladder.
-- The pattern of the stole that Martha gives Edward.
A couple of readers have asked about the length of Bella's hair now (and hair-cut). It looks more or less like this old picture of NBC/now-CNN anchor.
