Author has written 3 stories for Twilight.

Hey there! Thanks for visiting.

Wanna know a bit about me? I'm a New Englander, born and raised, and I have had a long and torrid love affair with writing. I went to college and got my journalism degree, tried making my living as a reporter and quickly discovered that the terms "making a living" and "reporter" don't always go together. So on to my next media-related career: PR.

In my spare time, I have freelanced for magazines and other publications, and have always enjoyed writing (fiction, historical fiction, poetry, short stories, etc.). I stumbled upon fan fiction about a year ago, and that was the end of "normal" life as I knew it.

Here I am, having completed my fan fic-writing journey, having loved every minute of it. And now I'm working on some writing projects of my own.

I hope you enjoy my stories and leave reviews. It makes me happy.

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.
