I am a stay at home mother of one son and two daughters. I have lived my entire life in northeastern Florida. My hobbies and interests include writing, pen palling, reading, cross stitch, jigsaw puzzles, shopping, history, and genealogy. The movie 'Sommersby' really hit home for me because my great great grandmother's brother also served in the Confederate army and was also hung for murder not too long after the Civil War ended. It happened in Texas but I don't know any more of the details so I don't know whether or not he was really guilty. Besides him I have many other relatives who served in the Confederate army and at least one direct ancestor and two of my great-great-great grandfather's brothers who gave their lives for that cause. I was raised mostly in Assemblies of God and Southern Baptist churches but I now consider myself to be a nondenominational liberal Christian. I came close to converting to Judaism about ten years ago but in the end decided not to because I didn't want to be the only Jew in my family. I'm still very interested in Judaism and all things Jewish however. I have read all the 'Left Behind' books and also all the 'Little House on the Prairie' books when I was much younger. I started reading V.C. Andrews in 1987 and have read all the series up through the ones that were out in 2006. I have most of the newer ones too and want to read them when I have time. I used to go to the theater to watch 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' just about every weekend from the time I was eighteen until my early twenties. I like just about all kinds of music and prefer documentary, historical, romantic, or suspense/thriller movies. I also love to watch 'Spongebob Squarepants' with my kids. Please read and review my stories as I would love to improve my technique and don't mind constructive criticism. Btw I have also been a Beatlemaniac since I was fourteen. :)
One of my primary reasons for joining fanfic is that I like to take movies, television show episodes and even songs that have a very sad ending and give them a sequel with a happy ending. As I say, "Whatever happened to 'and they all lived happily ever after?'" I have done that several times already and look forward to hopefully doing it many more times. :)
Oh yeah, and I'm also something of a Trekkie...mainly just Next Generation...and mainly just because I have always thought that Jonathan Frakes is sooo hot, both with and without the beard. lol
In real history my favorite ships are Tsar Nicholas II/Tsarina Alexandra and Robert Dudley/Queen Elizabeth I. I also love to ship Robert's younger brother Guilford and Lady Jane Grey, although sadly the time they had together before their unjust executions was so brief that not nearly as much is known about them as about the other couples. In fiction I ship: Troi/Riker and Riker/Soren on STNG, Professor/Mary Ann on Gilligan's Island, Gary Greenberg/Cindy Brady on the Brady Bunch, Laurie/Jo and Laurie/Beth on Little Women, David Hassid/Annie Christopher on Left Behind, and Aleksandr/Carrie on Sex and the City.
My favorite periods in history are the Tudor period and the French and Russian revolutions. I have also recently joined fictionpress and have several stories over there. My name on fictionpress is sweetladyjane2012.
To 'Guest': I don't care how many times you flame me, I am NOT taking 'Second Chance At Love' or any of my other stories down and that's final!
To all my readers: If you have a problem with any of my stories, you can leave a signed review or send me a PM and we can talk about it. I'm open to constructive criticism, but to leave a nasty review while hiding behind the anonymity of a 'guest' sign-in proves that you're nothing but a mean coward.
Here are some of my favorite movie quotes:
"Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn" (GWTW, of course! :))
"I'll think about it tomorrow. Tomorrow is another day" (ditto)
"You buried Jack?" "I buried Horace" (Sommersby)
"I knew it was you all along" (Sommersby)
"For better or worse, forgive me the worse" (Sommersby)
"Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." (Forrest Gump)
"Stupid is as stupid does" (Forrest Gump)
"Toto I don't think we're in Kansas anymore" (Wizard of Oz)
"I'll get you my pretty and your little dog too" (Wizard of Oz)
"There's no place like home...there's no place like home...there's no place like home..." (Wizard of Oz)
"When 800 years of age you are look as good you will not" (Yoda, Return of the Jedi)
"And what did the princess do after the knight rescued her?" "She rescued him right back" (Pretty Woman)
"Love means never having to say you're sorry" (Love Story)
"I gotta pee" (Forrest Gump)
"Make it so." (Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation) OK so not a movie but still a great quote lol
"Why does the tall man have a fuzzy face?" (Brent Spiner as the android B-4 in 'Nemesis')
There will probably be more as I think of them...:)
And finally a lovely poem that I was looking for a nice place to post:
Down by the sally gardens my love and I did meet
She passed the sally gardens with little snow-white feet
She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow on the trees
But I, being young and foolish, with her would not agree.
In a field by the river my love and I did stand
And on my leaning shoulder she laid her snow-white hand
She bid me take life easy, as the grass grows on the weirs
But I was young and foolish, and now am full of tears.
