Author has written 3 stories for Bones, and Twilight.

Variety is the spice to life.

Any such place as this is a home to the imagination and let's us broaden our horizons.


A Little About Myself: I'm roughly 5"5, dark brown hair with hazel/amber eyes that look brown from a far. I'm curvy, cynical, sarcastic and sexy... wrapped up into one very nice package. Ha. I'm naturally perky - in ways more than one - and I know how to cheer others up. I love the word cranky. Or any such verb or noun that rolls off the tongue with a snap. Quirky, raunchy, snarky, snarly...

What Norah Pearly-Gates Means:

The gist of it is that Pearly-Gates is from Bones, being Angela's name, and I love Angela so I added that to my account name, and Norah - meaning Honor - is somewhat taken from the film Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist, and the music presented in it is an opening to the genre and lists of music I like, so I put two and two together. And I love the name Norah. I considered changing my real name to that. Still am, at times.

Hello Darkness, my old friend

I've come to talk with you again

Because a vision softly creeping,

Left its seeds while I was sleeping

And the vision that was planted in my brain

Still remains


Within the sound of silence.

(The Sound of Silence, Simon and Garfunkel)

I will warn you that I suffer from a severe case of procrasinitus (procrasination), and although I am constantly sprouting out ideas up in my brain, I hardly ever put pen to paper. Forget encouragment, I need a slap on the wrist or a kick in the - sorry.
