Author has written 6 stories for Twilight.

"I shall try to tell the truth, but the result will be fiction." - Katherine Anne Porter

Hey, I'm Carmelina Gunn. Feel free to call me Car, as my friends do.

I play the tambourine and I laugh a lot.

Should you be interested in anything else about me send a P to the M. I'm almost certain you'll get a reply ;)


CURRENTLY: I suck at posting chapters, but I still do. Writing isn't something I have a ton of time to do. When I get inspired, I write. And I love it. But you have to be patient with me. Sorry.

- I used to have the Chapter Titles from IEWIS and MMM listed here but they were very long and I'm not certain many people are interested in them anymore so I took them down. I can send them to you if you are still interested. I love every song I use as a chapter title, so I have no problem sending anyone the list :)


Song List for After Hollywood

1 - The Goodbye Song - SMASH Cast

2 - Anything Can Happen - Ellie Goulding

3 - Lost Coastlines - Okkervil River

4 - Some Nights - Fun.
