Author has written 5 stories for Twilight.
Hello :) I'm Una (pronounced Oo-na). I am too old for you to care, yet younger than a hundred. I've had plenty of life experiences, some of which are included in my stories but I'm not going to tell you which ones they are!! I have four kids, two boys and two girls.
I was introduced to Twilight by my youngest daughter (I think she regrets that now). I am soooo Team Edward but I 'understand' Jacob... having brought up two boys through the teenage years, and survived. I've read all the Twilight series. My favourite book is Twilight. When I was my youngest daughters' age, I used to write a lot of poetry but now I try and write stories.
My hobbies are many. They include:- writing (I believe I am obsessed about writing now), reading (as many of your stories as possible and I review!).
I am currently wading through The House of the Night series and really enjoying them.
Listening to music of all kinds, (I like a lot of the music my daughter listens to especially Fall Out Boy and 30 Seconds to Mars). I also like Ne-Yo, and some Opera and of course Mr. Michael Buble.
Films I like:- Twilight (of course!), The Note Book, Pride and Prejudice, The Duchess, Sleepless in Seattle, August Rush (loving Jonathan Rhys Meyers with his Irish lilt - umm). Believe it or not I'm also a Star Wars fan. I was one of the thousands that lined up to see the very first film, waaay back in the seventies. Oooh, that makes me sound sooo old! I enjoy watching the following on TV:- One Tree Hill, Gilmore Girls, ER, Supernatural, Grey's Anatomy, Medium, The Mentalist (ummm) etc. etc. George Clooney is yum and so is Matt Damon. I also love voices such as Clint Eastwood, Richard Burton (heavenly Welsh accent), Sean Connery, Robert Redford. I realise that they belong to much older men and in Richard Burton's case, one that is no longer with us, but these are mens voices that exude experience of life. Wonderful!
Agony and Ecstasy:My hits on this story have reached 19,500. Thank you for reading it!
I have also had some great reviews for Pillow Talk which is complete. This story seems to have stirred up emotions in a lot of you who are reading it. I love it when a story evokes thought and challenges the way we think about sterotypes. When I came up with the idea for it, I just felt that I had to get the first chapter written and out there. I didn't believe that I would get such an amazing response to it. I enjoyed writing it and using the Twilight characters, in yet another, very different senario, to my other stories. As it stands, I have recieved over 43,500 hits. You are all wonderful! I won't be giving up writing just yet!
I have written a oneshot for the Back2Skool Unfmett Contest called The Irresistible Ms Swan. It's the first time that I have taken a chance to delve into Emmett's brain. I hope you like my version of him. My hits on this new story have reached 2,500. Thank you everyone.
Some of you may find my style of writing a little old fashioned. Please bear in mind that I was at school a long time ago and I'm fairly set in my ways as far as the English language is concerned. I actually think that Edward Cullen the Vampire would appreciate that fact!
I think that's all for now. I hope you enjoy reading the stories and let me know if you do (and if you don't). It gives writers a big boost when they know their stories are being read and enjoyed (or not). If I do get a harsh review from someone and that same person reviews another chapter from the same story, I know that I've done a good job because that person is still reading the story. They are hooked!!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who voted in the recent Back2Skool UNFmett contest.
You voted and my one shot The Irresistible Ms Swan took 1st place. Thank you. You are all amazing for supporting me and all the other authors who entered the contest. Without our readers where would we be?!
Since finding out the result I have felt quite overwhelmed. This was the first time that I entered anything into a contest and considering who I was up against, I am extremely flattered.
Once again thank you and thank you to Calikisses, DayDreamingAway, JessScript24, and PrettyFace27 for taking the time to run this contest.
Take care, all of you.

Hi all, sorry I have not been around for quite a while. RL has been tough but I am slowly getting my mojo back...hoping to get to grips with A&E soon.
Thank you so much for your continued interest in my stories...logging on today and seeing my stats, made me smile and feel encouraged.
Hope you are all well out there and taking care.
P.S. I have a twitter account...if you would like to follow me over there, please message me and I will give you the details.
