Author has written 4 stories for Twilight.
Happily married proud mother of three spoiled rotten dogs. The only man my hubby has to share me with is Edward Cullen. (well, RPattz in any form, really!) Well... and Flight of the Conchords. It's pretty much a Jemaine/RPattz toss up. :-p
PLEASE READ: I greatly appreciate all the interest that my stories have generated, but I am not now and will not likely ever be inclined to have them translated by another person that I don't know, regardless of the language. PLEASE stop sending me requests, the answer is NO. Thank you for thinking of me, I'm very flattered, but NO.
Here's a banner that I made for Blood and Lust. (I made it for another site, but I was proud of it, so I'm linking to it for everyone here to see it, too.)
And here is a song video I made recently, somewhat inspired by my story Blood and Lust and also this song. (It took me forever to find a site that would post it, with scenes from the movie.)

2/1/10 Blood and Lust Playlist: I just created an onine music playlist for Blood and Lust. There aren't a lot of songs so far, but I am trying to include anything that has either been mentioned or quoted in the chapters. Nothing very groundbreaking, I'm afraid, but they just seemed to fit Edward's mood at the time. So, for those of you who want to listen along, or for the few of you who haven't heard some of these songs, click the link and have a listen! Don't forget to check back from time to time, I will try to update with any new chapter additions.
Last Tango in Forks
I am going to be making MANY different playlists for this fic. They are all going to be actual playlists that the characters have on their ipods. After a new one gets mentioned, I am going to post a link. Now, all the songs on them may not get mentioned in the fic, but I thought it would be fun for you to be able to shuffle through their ipods and see what they like!
This first one is the only one that isn't an ipod list. This is the official "Last Tango in Forks" playlist, and it will have all the songs that are mentioned in the titles. It's not that big yet, but it will keep growing!
And THIS one, I just spent a LOT of time on! Here is the first ipod list...
(I think it's fun to listen to on shuffle!)
Edward's Painting Music: And here is the direct link to listen to "Blind" by Korn: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_hIojjA3A4
There has also been a team started up that is trying to pool their funds together for the LTIF outtake. If you are interested in joining up with them rather than trying to outbid them all, here is the link for more info:
Link to Tango video that helped inspire the dance in Chapter 15: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBHhSVJ_S6A&playnext=1&videos=By1mLO6Oqpg Yes it's from a cheesy older movie, but it was just the slow, sweet style I was looking for, and it helped that he was showing her how to do it. I didn't want professionals going about it all structured and fast. The song playing in the background is the same song I used in the chapter.
