Since I've been asked over and over to put something here, I finally decided to do it. I never heard of fanfiction until January of 2009, when in my desperation to fill the Twilight void, I happened upon an article on The Movie Fanatic, the third part of which was a section on fanfiction. I vaguely remembered some names and went in search of reading material. I have never looked back. I was amazed, stunned and otherwise confuzzled at the talent. To borrow from a familiar blog, I am a discerning reader and I've found plenty of stories for which I would pay cashola to read. I am not particular to genre, just that it is well written, with solid plot and characterizations. I will admit to a real fondness for AU and canon. It was the vampire element which first drew me, along with a certain Byronic hero to drool over.

I am old enough to know better and most definitely young at heart. I often use humor to defuse touchy situations. It is a very effective tool. I am a soon to be ex-wife, mother of four and in real life I am a manager of probation officers who supervise juvenile delinquents. I have an expertise in the legal process and in law enforcement as I have operated within those arenas for years. In the course of this job I have also developed a strong knowledge base of the treatment of mental health conditions, substance abuse and child abuse and neglect, which unfortunately is a hallmark of delinquency. I also have a medical background in that I originally went to school to be a nurse. I love music and art. I love learning new things which has been one of the best things about the ginormous numbers of stories which I have inhaled.

I am a firm believer in reviewing most every chapter that I read unless I really can't think of a single thing or single nice thing to say, which those who know me will tell you is highly unusual. I can usually find something. I use my reviews as a way to carry on a conversation with the author as well as a small way to pay them back for the hours of entertainment that they have given me. I have developed strong connections with some authors and these connections have led to things like pre-reading and ultimately friendship.

I am a beta, expert witness, and remover of foreign idioms and vernacular that is not Yankspeak. I am an old time copy editor, who learned this from my newspaper publishing uncle back in the days when you didn't have software programs to help you. You simply had to know the words and if you weren't sure, you looked in a dictionary. I have an eye for the words that are words but not used in the correct context; i.e., there, their, they're and others of that ilk. In other words, the words that will not be picked up by Spell Check. I love doing this. I know, I'm weird.

To sum up, I am a work in progress, and hope to never stagnate. Stagnant stuff is stinky.

PS> Age of Edward 2013 made me update this. 8/4/13: Aside from the above blather, I am a contributor to the Fictionators blog and one of three managers of an online writers' site, The Writers' Collective, formerly known as Fictionista Workshop.
