Author has written 7 stories for Twilight.

My bio used to be really long and drawn out and then I realized no one really wants to know all that stuff about me. So, here's the shorter version.

My parents started writing my stories and songs down for me when I was 2. Therefore, my writing portfolio of essays, stories, poetry, songs and letters span 29 years. I've won some awards and received some compliments over the years, but the thought always stuck with me (like many ff writers) that I wasn't good enough.

Then some lady had a dream about a sparkly vampire in a meadow...and her dream became a book...a sequel...a trilogy...a saga...a movie...a franchise. For the first time in my life, I thought - maybe that could be me.

Thanks in part to the encouragement and friendship of my Beta and Smut Dealer, I started working on my first novel, the FanFiction titled "Projects, Lessons & Love Songs", on August 27th, 2010. My completed novel went live on FanFiction.net on October 15th, 2010 - only nine weeks later.

I have a few non-FanFic plots that I would like to work out into full length novels someday, but I am currently too busy with real life and Fan Fiction to worry about that.

In the meantime, I'm relishing the fact that I've actually accomplished what I never thought I could do.

If you read my stories, please review. I am starved for your feedback so that I may continue to grow as a writer. You can also friend me on Facebook at IAmAutumDawn. There, I'm including pictures that inspired me, "behind the scenes" info, polls and questions, playlists and more. I'm currently looking for inspiration, so friend me soon!

Thank you for giving my words life beyond the page. I hope you enjoy.

PROJECTS, LESSONS & LOVE SONGS

Countless thanks to Jennifer G., Marne R. and Gena M. for bringing my story to life! These three incredible women found a website that would print and bind my story, creating my very first, hardbound copy of my own work! The printed book is 650 pages long - longer than Eclipse! I cried when I received the copy and simply can not thank them enough! You can view a copy of the book cover at

Many special thanks to Arabella for generously offering to create my very first banner for Projects, Lessons & Love Songs! You can see her brilliant work at

Also, numerous thanks to Heather Rosene for bringing my own banner idea to fruition with her exceptional graphic skills, and then making it even better than I imagined it in the first place! You can see her incredible creation at
