Author has written 13 stories for Twilight, and Labyrinth.

June 17, 2012

I have become a reader of late, although I am still working on the follow-up to 'The Birth of a King' story; it is just taking longer than I thought. My new interest is "Pride and Prejudice" and I'm setting up some story options along that story line. I have read a number of the what if variations, and other variations as well.

My number one pet-peeve lately is orphaned stories, of which there are just too many. My new policy is that I will not read a story unless it is marked completed. I really dislike it when I'm really into a story and then it just ends, and worst yet is when I notice that the last posting was in 2011. I'm not sure why anyone wants to orphan a story unless it is just that they do not have any idea where to go with the story from that point on. How sad.

I may end up moving two stories from my posting due to the new ratings - I tried to give them the MA rating, but that rating is not available. I would rather pull them than be banned from the site. I hope we are notified if we need to pull a story before they just outright ban an author. If I have to pull them, I will note where they went to when I find a place to put them.

Well, that is my update for now. Happy reading.

My philosophy about life:

1- Age is subjective rather than objective, and your mind really rules your body.

2 – What is life if it is all work and no play, where is the fun in that.

I don't usually join sites, but I have always been interested in writing and I absolutely fell in love with Stephenie Meyer's Twilight (I have read it 8 times) and then found this site with a vast variety of fan spin offs, so I decided I would join.

My greatest weakness is playing. I love to play - on my computer, board games, and cards games. My favorite computer games vary because I can lose interest in a game if it seems to repetitive; now I get most of my games from Game House so I can change then often through the use of Fun Play. I also enjoy Suduko and logic problems.

My greatest strength is reading - I love to read. My favorite books are the The House of Night series, The City of Bones series (I think they are really called the Mortal Instruments series), Harry Potter series, the Charlie Bones series, the Series of Unfortunate Events series, all the plays of Shakespeare - which I fell in love with when I was in 11th grade - I like cozy mysteries like 'The Cat Who' and 'Aunt Dimity,' but have put them aside in favor of vampire stories with my two favorite authors being Amelia Atwater-Rhodes (who has not written any new vampire books lately) and Stephenie Meyer and Fantasy stories with faeries in them - Holly Black is currently on top there, but I have read a lot of the Teen Top Ten for 2008 and there were a number of fun and interesting fantasy books on that list. I was really enjoying the Cirque de Freak books until I finally went online and bought the last two books in the series, and then I was disappointed in the ending. But I did find on fan fiction a way to change that. I can now write my own ending and post it here to share with anyone who is interested. I find I enjoy young adult literature more than most current adult literature because of the over use of offensive language and violence, and many times the plots and themes found in young adult literature are richer and fresher. In addition, I like to keep current so I can share with my students what is new and what is worth reading.

My other hobby, besides my computer, is family genealogy. I really enjoy reading old newspapers that tell what past family members were up to while they were young, and I started to collect old stories from my grandmothers before they both died. I wish I had been more interested when I was younger and had collected the stories my grandfathers use to tell about logging when they were younger, but now it is too late.
