Author has written 3 stories for Twilight.

I'm an art publisher and art director, and just happen to be passionate about my hobbies. One day my daughter comes home complaining that all her friends ever talk about is “Twilight” so I suggest we watch the movie so she'll at least know what they're talking about. That weekend we watched Twilight on pay-per-view, the following day I'm at Target buying the DVD and book series, and the rest is fan-girl history.

I stumbled across fan fiction and started out as a fanfic reader, but before long I was inspired to try my hand at writing fanfic. One thing all of my stories share is a love of artists and the process of creation. I'm very passionate about my characters and am so appreciative of the readers that care about them as well. I love this community and have met many wonderful people from all over the world through this experience.

I dedicate my efforts to the fan girls. I've seen great love, passion, terrific humor and bits of brilliance in so many of you. You're the real deal, and I'm proud to consider myself part of your team.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I pulled Animate Me from FanFic on March 22nd 2013. The story has been re-edited, and illustrations were added before being published May 1st 2013. It is available on Amazon.
