Author has written 2 stories for Twilight.

I started reading fanfic when a stress fracture had me off my feet and in front of the computer much more than usual. It’s been an eye-opening and deeply satisfying experience. Sebastien Robichaud, Snowqueens Icedragon, WriteOnTime, tarasueme, WndrngY, hunterhunting and so many others: I’ve enjoyed your stories more than I can say. Thank you for sharing your writing with FF readers like me.

About me, if for some strange reason you're interested: I'm a freelance writer with a husband, two kids, a golden retriever, a laptop, a mortgage, and a partridge in a pear tree. Or something like that.

I tweet occasionally, @writingbabe, and, thanks to my lovely beta, this story now has a thread on the Twilighted Forum. Stop by and share your thoughts.

Another fun fact: I once won an office competition dubbed the Nerd Olympics. That's right, I'm a gold medal-winning dork. Does that make me an award-winning writer? *looks to chair judge, who shakes his head* Yeah, didn't think so.

I'd tell you more, but I'm just not that interesting.
