Author has written 5 stories for Twilight.
I am a forty *mumble* years old, have been married long enough to deserve a medal, and I have three kids . I work as a casleoad midwife (irrelevant, I know, but my job is my 'ligit' passion).
Twilight was like an epiphany for me. I never fancied myself as a fangirl of anything before now, but the older I get, the less I worry about looking weird in the eyes of my teenage sons. I embrace my weirdness now and am aiming for eccentricity in my senior years. Finding fan fiction (thank you, Bower-of-Bliss) made my obsessive reading dreams come true. Instead of letting a story go, I could immerse myself in more and more of it, heaven! Then little scenes started developing in my head, visions of other things my favorite characters would do, and I just couldn't let these thoughts go.
So, here I am. Deciding to swallow my insecurities, I squelched my natural inclination towards procrastination and made a start writing my own stories. Thanks to twilight, I have the opportunity to fulfill another of my fantasies, some of which I can now actually talk about in public.
* "Through a glass, darkly" was my first attempt at writing. This is the link to the awesome banner, made by the super-talented LaPushStarlight, for my story. Check it out

01/10/2012: It has been brought to my attention that "Through a glass, darkly" was translated without my permission. This and several other stories treated likewise have since been removed. Although very flattered, I do not wish any of my works be translated. Thanks, but no thanks.
