I am a New Jersey domestic engineer, having recently lost my job in eldercare. 50, married, no kids, lots of free time on my hands these days. I'm a rock chick at heart, now looking for musicians to work with on collaborations and covers.

In January 2010, my 14 year old niece finally convinced me to read The Saga, and I was hooked. You know the rest - discovered Rob, drooled a little, saw Remember Me and realized the boy has real talent. He's hot now, but I swear in 20 years when he's in his forties he's going to kill me, cause ladies & gents, he's only going to get better with age. So am I, but I don't know if my heart will be able to take it!

I started reading fanfic early 2010, and once I got over my shyness (yeah, right, me shy phfft) started reviewing after a few months. When the author of a story I reviewed asked me if I'd like to pre-read, I jumped at the chance, and I am now proud to be working with Morgan Locklear & his wife/beta randomcran.

I don't write (fanfic, anyway) and don't expect to start anytime soon. But miracles happen every day, and if I do, you'll find it here after bouncing it off my friends and a lot of gnashing of teeth, I'm sure...

So, I don't expect to be an official "fan beta", again, anytime soon, but you never know when inspiration will strike. I have been having some interesting dreams lately...

Thanks for checking me out - you'll find some of my favorite stories and authors here, and you'll find me on twitter @ishldntbehere.
