I'm a thirty-something mom of two who loves to read. I would rather read than sleep. I'll pull an all-nighter to finish a story. Fanfiction sounded absurd to me for the longest time. One day I gave it a try and wham. Hook, line and sinker. I'm a consumer of fan fiction, not a writer. I will faithfully pimp out the stories I love to anyone who will read them. I'm a faithful reviewer, too. Because it take a pair of lady balls to put something out for public consumption- and I want the authors to know how their stories move me.

My husband thinks my "handle" is the lamest thing ever. This coming from the guy who had Zovirax as his online gaming name. Yeah, the herpes drug. Really? In that context, mine's not looking so bad, is it? I just wish he would have spent more time getting to know that certain Stephenie when he was in high school. Yes, THAT Stephenie.
