Author has written 2 stories for Twilight.
UPDATE 6/2/2011: Hello all! Just a quick update on "Fallen Angels" and life in general. I know it seems like forever since I last posted a new chapter...or anything for that matter. I would first like to apologize to all my readers for disappearing so suddenly and leaving you all hanging. I know how frustrating it can be to start reading a story, get into it, and never have the satisfaction of knowing how it ended. But I want you all to know that THIS STORY IS NOT DEAD! I promise that Edward and Bella will eventually have their "happy ending."
And that brings me to the next question I know you're probably wondering. WHEN??
Well, unfortunately right now I can't answer that with any certainty. Since my last update, I've run into a number of health and personal issues that absolutely had to take priority. My writing has especially suffered and been put on hiatus for the time being. Trust me...if I could devote the time and energy, I'd rather write than anything else in the world (aside from spending time with my family that is).
BUT...I'm HOPING that this summer will give way to little bursts of creative energy and LONG LONG LONG periods of quiet contemplation so that I can finally come back to this. Please believe me when I say that I haven't given up on "Fallen Angels." I still love the characters and the story so much, and I wouldn't think of deserting them...or you, for that matter.
Anyway, thanks so much for being patient and dropping little notes from time to time. They mean a lot, especially right now.
Hugs and smoochies,
My name is Kimberly, and I'm a 35-year-old stay-at-home mom and aspiring author. I originally hail from the HOT state of Florida, but I'm currently enjoying a peaceful small-town existence in Pennsylvania. I've known my whole life that I wanted to become a writer. At 8-years-old, I could usually be found playing with my mother's typewriter or scribbling stories down in a notebook. I staged little dramas with my Barbies or Star Wars action figures, and as I got older would watch movies and think of ways I could make them better.
My life hasn't changed much from those early days. I graduated in 2008 with my BA in English/Writing, and when I'm not chasing kids around the house I'm usually found pecking away on my computer. In addition to Fallen Angels, I'm currently working on three other projects. Two are contemporary romantic fiction, and one is a three-volume contemporary fantasy based on Celtic myth and mysticism. If all goes well, I hope to have the first book in the trilogy published by the end of next year. Of course, that depends a lot on dividing my time between projects...and unfortunately (or fortunately for you), I've become quite addicted to Fallen Angels.
I began writing fanfiction as a fun little diversion to give myself a break from the pressure of my more serious projects. However, I have to say that I've become even more engrossed in writing about Bella and Edward than I ever imagined I would. My muse seems to love them, and most nights they are the only characters she allows me to think about. Wide Awake and The Red Line were the first fanfics I'd ever read, and to this day I believe the two combined (along with an intense love for the Twilight saga) are what inspired me to begin my own.
A few additional hobbies of mine:
~Creating book covers and banners for my friends on Paint Shop Pro (PSP)
~Making (and watching) music videos for YouTube (Twilight, LOTR, and NCIS)
~Singing, music, and recording (I've been told I'm pretty good, however beauty is in the eye--or in this case, ear--of the beholder)
~Reading (I'm partial to Shakespeare, Chaucer, and Yeats. But some of my favorite contemporary authors are Stephenie Meyer, Nicholas Sparks, Steven King, and Bill Bryson)
~WORDS WORDS WORDS!! I'm in love with my thesaurus and online dictionaries. I love playing with word order, etymology, sentence structure, and the like. I have an addiction to editing...just ask my good friend, a.keim!
