Author has written 5 stories for Twilight.

I'm no longer younger than the answer to life the universe and everything. In fact, I'm possibly old enough to be your mother.

I read the Twilight Saga in January 09 while recovering from surgery, and I felt sad when the books ended. I didn't want to stop reading about the characters. Thankfully, I discovered fan fiction.

I have a tendency to lead others into temptation, so after getting all my friends addicted to Twilight, I am slowly introducing them to fan-fics. I have often been blamed for being a corrupter and enabler. I regularly get blamed by others for their lack of sleep, child neglect, bladder continence issues, and lowering of housework standards. :P

I'm a big fan of U.S.T, not a huge fan of slash and prefer canon couples. I love reading AU, OOC and AH stories.

If I could have one wish it would be that I could clone myself, so I can read and write faster.

My first foray into fanfiction (beyond reading) was as a beta for Kat Kennedy. Sadly, she pulled all of her wonderful stories and now she spends her days dodging death threats from disgruntled authors who have been on the receiving end of her unapologetic book reviews on the Cuddlebuggery Blog.

I then became a beta for Ferla V (now known as Drowning in Chaos). After reading the Angel Of Corruption one-shot, I barged into Chaz's life and begged her to expand the story. I also asked to beta for her and offered some plot ideas for Angel Of Corruption in a different POV. Chaz promptly replied and told me that I should write them instead. As a result, AoC Outtakes, and a beautiful online friendship was born.

Where else can you find me?

Due to the episodic witch-hunts here on FFN, where thousands of M rated fics get deleted, I have posted my stories on Fiction Pad and The Writer's Coffee Shop.

The lovely Missleez has translated Drowning, not waving (Je ne faisais pas bonjour, je me noyais) into French and it can be found here on FFN.


Trivia time:

Bower of bliss is a euphemism for a part of the female anatomy.

It was used by Thomas Carew in his erotic 17th century poem "A Rapture"- Lines 67-70.

Then will I visit with a wand'ring kiss

The vale of lilies and the bower of bliss ;

And where the beauteous region both divide

Into two milky ways, my lips shall slide
