Author has written 9 stories for Twilight.

I know I write for self-fulfillment.

I know I write for self-awareness.

I know I write for self-expression.

I think I write for self-actualization.

But I want to write for self-realization.

Longtime writer who would love to turn that passion into a career, and really wouldn't mind if a vampire named Edward came through my window one night and had his way with me. Want to know more - shoot me a PM or leave a review (I always respond).

I've had quite a few requests to post the playlist from my story, "Music Lessons". The below pieces are very dear to me (I've performed almost all of them, either on piano or cello) and they were the inspiration for the story - they are meant to fit with each chapter they are referenced in. I've attached Youtube links so you can play the music while reading the story. Enjoy! :)

Playlist for "Betrothed"

Everyone that's under the age of 30 will laugh at me for this, but seriously, this is a HUGE DEAL. Playlists...HTML...one big ole link that links all the music into one... WOW. I finally figured it all out. If you've been to this page before, you'll maybe understand the huge milestone this represents. FINALLY! Here it is - one nice, neat link to the songs for Betrothed. Same disclaimer as before...OBVIOUSLY the songs do not match up "era-wise". However, I think this playlist sums up Rosalie & Edward's angst quite nicely. Argue if you wish. Suggest new songs if you wish. But remember, I'm a rocker-chick, so I reserve the right to reject songs that don't fit my mood... ;) This weekend, maybe I'll tackle "Music Lessons" monstrous playlist. Maybe.
