Author has written 3 stories for Twilight.

Update 08/24/11: Almost done with the new chapter. You people are saints for waiting. If you want to wait until the whole fic is done, I don't blame you. Thank you for sticking with my story.

I like pina coladas and getting caught with your mom.

Mary, Full of Grace has been in my head a long time. Who was Mary Brandon? Why was her life so difficult, so shamed? Why would her parents hide her away and then put on a show, mourn her as if she had died? My head began filling with all these scenarios and one day I just bit the bullet and started writing it down.

It features a lot of original characters but, since Smeyer gave us nothing to work with, them's the break. I assure you I'll show her meeting Jasper (and maybe the Cullens) towards the end. For now, you really should get to know Mary. She's a sweet little thing.

Give Us This Day is bits and pieces of MFoG that didn't quite fit in but I hated to just delete.
