Author has written 2 stories for Twilight.

Discovered fanfiction thanks to a group of likeminded unicorns. Wide Awake was my gateway drug. Rock.

I am a copyeditor IRL. I'm silently betaing your story while I read.

Things I like include: tea, my husband, knitting, shoes, cheese, YA lit, handkerchiefs, soft grass, old suitcases, that sound guitars make when fingers slide between chords, green things, rocky beaches, roundabouts, and people with accents.

Thanks to all who have read and reviewed my first one-shot/fic, Darkbloom! I know Remumblemumble is the dark stepchild of the Twilight fandom, but my heart kind of broke when I imagined how weird her life would be.

Darkbloom was recommended on The Little Known Ficster!

I entered an ExB one-shot, Phoenix, in the With A Burning Heart winter olympics story contest, and was floored when it was voted first place in the open poll and selected as the judges' choice. It also received a special mention for featuring the 2010 Paralympics. Thanks so much to all who read and reviewed and voted.

Banners, made by the lovely and talented SorceressCirce for Phoenix:

First Choice, Open Poll

Special Mention - Paralympics

Thank you all for reading!
