Author has written 1 story for Twilight.

My profile on Twitter says this: "Wife, mum of 2, journalist/media advisor, avid reader, baker and film buff." That about covers it. Oh, and I'm from New Zealand.

I can often be found playing at Random Acts of Rob http://robert-pattinson.ca/or on Twitter, where I'm @mrsaubergine

The Exclusive is my first attempt at fiction, but I have been writing non-fiction for cough22yearscough as a journalist. It's just a wee piece of fluff. I hope you like it.

Apologies to @ninapolitan for use of the word "Panty" ;-)

I'll use my profile to post musical and visual links for each chapter.

The very talented and lovely @DreamySim has made me this banner for The Exclusive: http://twitpic.com/1l2t3w I love her so much!!
