Author has written 13 stories for Twilight.

January 31st, 2011 - Okay, I guess I'd better bite the bullet and say what I haven't been wanting to say. I'm still horribly sorry about the lack of updates but I'm taking an indefinite hiatus from writing. This was probably obvious from my disappearance from the world of Fanfic. I really apologize to those of you who were following my stories. I know I hated it when I found out authors I myself followed decided to stop writing.

The birth of my first child, a beautiful baby girl, has taken up a lot of my time. I love writing and want to continue, I just don't know when.

I'll leave my stories up. Thanks so much for reading and following and again, many apologies for the numerous incompletes I'm leaving behind.


Hmmm...what to say? I'm Canadian but currently residing in Melbourne, Australia where I work as a primary school teacher. I miss my homeland deeply.

I adore Stephenie Meyer's series, and turned to reading Twilight fanfiction once Breaking Dawn was finished.

I also love reading. My favorites include, but are not limited to: the Twilight Series, Harry Potter, Earth's Children Series, Life of Pi and anything Khaled Hosseini has written up until now.

Go and check out GUARDING EDWARD by my incredibly amazing beta, katmom. It is a great read!

Some in-progress stories I'm enjoying: Survival of the Soul, A Rough Start and Dragon Stones.

Some of my completed favourites: This Year's Love (I love love love this one!), Healing, A World Without Sound, The Submissive and Only Human.

I aspire to be as good a writer as those that wrote the stories above.

Also, I signed up for Twitter, though I'm not sure why. I'll use it mainly to update about my writing progress and talk nonsense. The link is: http://twitter.com/A_Mayes
