Author has written 17 stories for Twilight.
First, and always, thank you to everyone who reads my stories. I know your time is valuable, and I appreciate any time you have given to my musings. Please drop me a note to say 'hi' (aka review). After all these years, I'm still around and would love to hear from you... After all, interaction with others is why we do this!!
Not much is really new in my writing, but I continue to read. The latest is my entry into the 2015 Red Eyed Edward contest won a Judge's Pick! Thank you, YellowGlue! And I'm went cross-country to my first Twilight Meet Up in 2016 in SanDiego, and a Fall trip is planned this year (2018) to see my fanfic sisters.
I'm so sad we have no more Twilight movies to hungrily anticipate, and I miss my Twilight calendars : ( But I spent numerous hours creating a look back at Bella and Edward's journey and creating a sort of sweet tribute video (the quality was as good as it got when I made it :). Check it out: Reflections of Twilight
If you are a reader of my fanfic Honeymoon Suite or if you just enjoyed the honeymoon and melted over the thought of daddyward, I invite you to view my vid to accompany Honeymoon Suite. I tried to express the emotion of the story in pics and music. I do hope you enjoy this gift to my awesome readers! Click here. (over 3 million hits!! Thanks!!). Oh heck, just stop by my YouTube channel (TwiliteAddict) for lots of Twilight vids from the Twi heydays!
I sometimes dabble on Twitter (@Twilitedaddict) and I'm on FaceBook at Cullen Lisa. Finally, please always consider leaving a comment if you read a story (even if it is complete), it lets the author know you are out there! Why do authors love reviews? The answer may surprise you! Read this well-articulated article on reviews (). Why do I write fanfic? Honestly, to make a connection to the readers. Without you, there is little point. So say anything -- just say something!! And unless you tell me not to, I will write back --

The Face I Can't Forget is complete with one outtake and an epilogue. It turned into a romantic comedy -- boy, was I surprised to see it take that turn! It scored me and RosaBella75/IslandWoman221 an interview with Partner's in Crime Fanfic Corner (thanks booty492)! RosaBella and I had fun being silly during the interview. Read it here:

I like to laugh, and sometimes all this Twilight angst gets my funny bone atrophying (or 'wasting away' for you nonmedical folk)? For a collection of fanfics with a sense of humor, try GiggleSnort.net. Speaking of giggling and snorting (a couple of my favorite things to do), here's a collection of spoofs that make me laugh. This one features hotdaddy doc, PFach himself - Breaking Dawn Birth Scene. This one has Rob poking fun at one of Jimmy Fallon's regular spoofs "Bothered" . This is 'my kind of humor', but this clip from Jimmy Kimmel might make you snicker too. Finally (*giggle*) my fave alternate ending to Twilight -- "Let's go eat some people!". And yippee, here is BD2 - How it should have ended.
FanFic has changed my life. I have never been to the world of fanfic (or written creatively) until the arrival of Twilight. But the best part has been the friendships I have made. My stories focus mainly on emotions (yea emo!). That's why I love the characters of Twilight -- they have such unexplored depth! I think our emotions motivate our actions. Understanding how someone feels will often predict their behavior as it does in my stories.
I am so blessed to have made many friends in this fandom and psyched to say I actually met some of them in RL. I am a mom and a nurse manager living in northeast Ohio, USA. The weather sucks, but it's a safe place to live. I also have the unique perspective of young love, having married my high school love -- Twilight let me experience those same feelings of first love from (too) long ago.
I'd like to also promote a story/writer I've been working with. Her research and story-telling abilities rock. It's From the Ashes by RowanMoon (complete)
Bella rises from the ashes of battle against The Volturi in The Great War as the Three that become One; Powerful witch of the Striga line, a blood descendant of Taha Aki the great Pricolici Shifter, and now, newborn vampire with Edward's venom coursing through her veins. As our heroine celebrates her family's victory and her marriage to her imprinted mate, an unexpected guest shows up at the wedding who is bent on revenge and making Bella suffer in the worst way imaginable. Join Bella as she races against time across continents to save a loved one and fulfill a destiny that she was never prepared for. Sequel to Broken Doll (you just gotta read this!!). Rated NC-17 for smexy times!
