Author has written 8 stories for Twilight.

UPDATE 01/21/2014: The Muse has begun to sing again. Loudly. The next chapter of Playing With Fire is almost ready to go. Expect an update as soon as my wonderful betae give the okay.

I've been writing fan fiction in one form or another since 1997. Many years and fandoms later, I've switched to the Twilight side of things. Previous fandoms include Star Trek: Voyager, The Phantom Menace, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., and NCIS. I also wrote under a different pseud back then... Kudos to anyone who recognizes me, though I somehow doubt my scandalous reputation will be easily revealed.


Because I have a degree in English with writing focus, helping people in this area is important to me. I wish I had time to do full beta work, but I don't. The next best thing, however, is to offer a wonderful resource link to anyone interested in learning more about grammar and usage. This site was put together by a friend of mine and contains a wealth of information on words for writers of any level:

http://tinyurl.com/8dvoyjh

With regard to my own stories, I am rescinding my original statement about never posting in installments. That idea has flown right out the window as I now have two WIPs. *sigh* Bear with me - my Muse, Sybil, is extremely difficult to get along with. I also write about as fast as a glacier moves, unfortunately.

I do enjoy constructive criticism, so if you didn't like something in one of my stories, please feel free to say so. I've had plenty of advanced grammar and writing courses, but that doesn't mean I'm not still growing as a writer. I value any input someone is kind enough to offer.

In the event that I should ever be TOS'ed from FFN for the lemony goodness in my stories, I do have an alternate account set up over at Twiwritehttp://www.twiwrite.net/

I also have a new permanent home at the Archive of Our Own multi-fandom archive: http://archiveofourown.org/users/Zoya_Zalan/pseuds
