Author has written 10 stories for Twilight.

I am a 29 year old living in the Bay Area of California.

I am slightly obsessed with Twilight, for which I blame my friend Wendi who brought the book into work one day and said, "Oh my God, you have to read this!". Yeah, pretty much everything else is history. And now Twilight has taken over my life.

I used to be opposed to fan fiction, but I took a chance on a couple of stories and got hooked. From there I just kept going and after reading a ton of amazing stories, I have decided to try my hand at it.

I also need to give mad props my Gomey, Brianna (aka. ohdisco), cause she was the one who told me about this website and now I am hooked. So actually, I blame her for all this mess! She's also the one that I bounce my story ideas off of, and she gave me mad support when I told her that I was going to try to write one! We are currently collaborating on a story that will be like no other, so I suggest you check it out!

If you are looking for something good to read, check out my list of favorites, I have a ton listed on there.
