Author has written 19 stories for Twilight.
Hey. I'm Jen. 33 year old mom to two beautiful children, wife to my own personal Edward, twitter-addicted, foul-mouthed (at times), lover of the written word. I'm not sure when I decided I wanted to be a writer, but the thought was always there. But life, you know? Somehow it got away from me. For a while, I didn't think I'd ever get it back. But now I'm writing again--clearly, I'm writing a lot. I love that this fandom has given me the chance to participate in fundraisers and help to raise money for causes I believe in, like ALSF and the Nashville Flood Relief. I love the people I've met, the friends I've made, and the authors I've gotten to know. I believe that having a book in a bookstore is not the only way to make an author. Knowing that some of my fan fiction stories touch people's lives makes me feel like an author. I hope one day that some of you will hold a book of mine in your hand, but right now I thank you for stopping by and reading what I have to offer here. YOU are what makes this venture worthwhile. Your readership, your valued criticism, and your appreciation. Thank you for revving my writing engine.
Upcoming Charities: Fandom 4 Texas: a new short story entitled Butterflies are Free to Fly. See the banner by Twisted in Masen. Mal and Leo's HEA: An original short story entitled The Selkie's Bride. See the banner by Jaime Arkin.
As I journey into the unknown world of Original Fiction, I've set up some places where you can follow my journey. You know, if that's your thing. :) I'm on Twitter and I have a Facebook author page. Don't worry; I will complete everything on my profile and I will not be pulling any of these stories to publish. Anything that I attempt to publish will be completely my own. These stories will remain here for your enjoyment for as long as you want them.

I thank all them for their work. I pretty much can't draw a straight line, let alone make pretties like this. Thank you ladies!
*I do not now, nor will I ever, give permission for ANY of my stories to be translated into ANY language. You can PM me if you'd like, but you're going to get the same answer. I appreciate the interest and the thought behind the requests, however since I am unable to read any languages well enough to ensure the quality of any translations, I simply can't authorize them. I thank you for your understanding.*
