Author has written 1 story for Twilight.

I am a thirty something mom of 2, a nurse, a friend to the most awesome women I know of, and the wife of my own personal Edward Cullen. I love to read and I love to write...when time permits. Other things I LOVE...ballet flats, Sephora, my iPod, Pei Wei's Japanese Teriyaki Bowl, black finger nail polish, my MacBook (who is named Cali, as in ExCALIbur), coffee, this crazy subculture known as FanFiction, not having to be anywhere on a Saturday morning, and last but not least, Jesus!

Our Tree is my first venture into FanFic. I hope all will enjoy. There are a lot of 80's references, b/c it's what I know. But you needn't be a child of the 80's to get this story...

Our Tree is rated "M" b/c there will be adult/"heavy" issues dealt with, especially as the story progresses. If FF were based on a movie rating system, Our Tree would be PG-13, if that makes sense. A "T" rating just didn't feel right to me, b/c it felt like I was calling it juvenile/teeny-bobber or something, and it's not. Wish there was a whole other letter rating for stories like mine. But alas, there's not. blah, blah, blah :)

And last but not least, JUST FOR FUN, if anyone out there can figure out what my pen name free4851 means, I will send you a whole chapter before anyone (besides my beta) sees it!


Music rocks my world. Seriously. My iPod is undoubtedly like a 3rd child to me. I will include links to music that has been mentioned in a chapter, as well as an songs that served as inspiration to me.

An Introduction to Swirl and Daisy by m81170 reviews
A first kiss, a first dance, a first curse word shared between best friends. This is the tale of a boring, young geek and the social pariah who thought the world of him. A tale of growing up. A tale of a Non-Romantic Romance.

Expectations and Other Moving Pieces by chrometurtle reviews
Everything I had done in my life seemed to lead up to this moment. The moment when I found myself bound inextricably to a man I didn’t love, trapped in a life I didn’t want. And if I left him, I would be entirely alone.

Ashen Skies, A Tainted Genocide by QuestionXisting reviews
They told us never to forget, & we promised always to remember. Over-population is now a priority & it seems like the extermination of humans is the only answer. Edward a confused militant is pushed between what is "right" & what his heart is telling him

Type O Negative by quothme reviews
When the Cullens move to Forks, Bella thinks that the creepy new kid, Edward, has freaky yellow eyes. And that he's insufferably rude. Good thing he's in love with someone else. An AU dark comedy.

Our Tree reviews
When Bella finds herself engaged to the man she SHOULD want to marry, all she can do is remember the one who got away... AU; all human. Rated M for adult/"heavy" situations.
