Author has written 1 story for Twilight.

I'm 40 years old, have been married 21 years, and have a fifteen year old daughter (whom I'm trying to keep this penname and story a secret). My other penname is Kelsismom and besides this one, I've posted nine other fics (Phantom of the Opera, Twilight, Dear Frankie, and CastAway all T-rated) I've learned so much here since I began writing fan fiction back in 2006 and am truly grateful for the friends and feedback I've gained in this community. It's definitely been a learning experience. Also, I've been inactively seeking an agent for my YA manuscript, which one day I would love to find a home for on the shelves of major retailers. :)

Hard to Get was originally inspired by the Under Her Thumb challenge, but since this story doesn't fall under BDSM, I continued with it anyway - When it comes to boys, it's never been hard for Bella to take what she pleases, but on her first day of school in Forks, she meets mysterious, but aloof Edward Cullen. Will he be her biggest challenge yet? --Just for fun. :) Updates are likely to be sporadic! I'll likely post teasers for Teaser Mondays on when I have them.

9/7/10 - A huge thanks to Cullen818 who posted a wonderful rec on Jasper's Naughty Girls blog >>>

9/11/10- Check out my new teaser featured on The Wayward Pushers >>l

10/22/10 - Please forgive me for falling behind! I'm about halfway through the next chapter, but I've been trying to work my way through my other fic - Fire Becomes Ice (which is almost finished!) Please hang in there with me, and I'll do my best to get something out soon.

12/22/10 - I know! Truly it's been ridiculous how long it's been since I've updated. I'm working toward the end of Epov now and hope to have something maybe by the end of the week. Thanks for hanging in there!

1/17/11- Yay! Back on track somewhat with another update soon - later today probably. Thanks for your patience! ;)

2/14/11- New chapter posted, just in time for Valentine's Day! Also please check out the pimp a fic rec I recently found for HARD to Get on the Twi Muses blog, posted back in December! >>

4/12/11 - My apologies to those who've waited so patiently for an update! I've had to make a tough decision, based on the demands of my personal life and career goals. With the little writing time I have, I've sacrificed my pursuit of publishing my manuscript, which has to become a priority to fanfiction. HARD to Get is officially on hiatus until I can get my head on straight and my priorities back in order. Thanks to all of who have followed thus far. And to those who no longer wish to wait, I understand if you choose to stop reading. Bella and all her naughtiness will be back when the timing is better.

2/4/12 - I'm gearing up to have a new update for this Valentine's Day - it's been a long and a busy year since last I posted. Bella and her bad girl stuff is back and ready for action.

5/18/12 - Sorry to have left you all with a cliffy! I am in desperate need of a beta before I can post the next one. Thanks for your patience!

5/24/12- Thanks so much to my new beta Giggles 1991. There's not much left to this story but I'm so happy and grateful for her help!

6/18/12 - It looks like I'll be posting the epilogue in the next couple of days, and I'm sad to see the story coming to a close, but I'd also like to thank Camilla10 for her help as beta and pre-reader as well.

4/12/13 - If you happen to be in the mood for something T-rated, I have, under my other penname Kelsismom, been updating my latest story called "The Mission." Summary: Newborn Bella is given an impossible mission. Capturing the Cullens' clairvoyant will not only keep her alive, but help her prove her worth to her leaders. But what she didn't count on was falling for the coven's mindreader. A/U ExB
