I'm 29 with three kiddos. I run a small business from home and love the flexibility it gives me (more time to read!).
I've always enjoyed reading. One thing that I don't like about reading fanfic, and sometimes even published books is that I catch the misspellings and grammatical errors. I hate it. It's like I have a radar or something. It's very aggravating, at times. Since being introduced to fanfic in 2010, I've gotten better. I can pass a "their" when it should be "they're" and not actually flinch. I'm proud of myself. Ha.
Moving on from my madness, I'm addicted to Twilight stories. Especially, ExB. I don't venture far from canon coupling, but when I do, I usually lean towards BxJ. I've read ONE story with Edward and someone else. Never, never, never again. Ever.
I like HEA. What can I say? I really don't want to be pissed at an author because of their writing. I'm sure it's great, but I just don't like leaving a story feeling bummed out.
I'd love to Beta, but I don't have any experience and the few people I've offer to beta for...have declined. Le sigh.
I just recently made a banner for CaraNo's "Second Page". First banner ever, so I'm kinda proud of it. You can find it on her blog, under Fan Art.

I've been thinking about writing my own stories for a while, but it's very intimidating. So many writers on here are amazing and I'm not sure I could compete with that. Maybe soon!
