I'm a French exile, been living in England for over half of my life. I stumbled upon True Blood when Season 1 was first shown here, I had to get the SVM books and read them all obsessively. Then a reviewer on Amazon mentioned FF and I was hooked. I've always been a compulsive reader, so this is bliss.
From Charlaine Harris I moved on to Laurell K Hamilton, then JR Ward, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Lara Adrian, Christine Feehan, Rachel Vincent, Patricia Briggs, and many more... I was determined not to relent to the sparkly vampires, but eventually I gave in and read the Twilight saga. I like the SM world and the idea of the characters, but really dislike the way she handles female characters and relationships, so I prefer non-canon and AH stories.
Unsympathetic hubby despairs and has threatened interventions several times. RL sucks no end.
I am working up to (one day, hopefully) write something of my own, in the meantime I am trying to review everything I read on FF, and to try and give meaningful, expressive reviews (I said 'try'...) in appreciation of the work and effort all the writers put in.
I am on Twitter posting all sorts of perviness and rants @mariejeanne26ff come on over and say hi!
