My avatar is how I see Edward in Cullen's Roadhouse. His bar's shirt, otherwise it's mostly flannel and jeans.

I've begun to get quite a few questions about whether Cullen's Roadhouse and some of my other shorter stories are "HEA." It is not my policy to share how a story will end with some readers for fear that others may be spoiled inadvertently. I find that each person's definition of HEA is different. I will say that I write stories that I consider to be realistic. That means bad things happen sometimes -people die, people cheat, and they lose sight of who they are meant to be. In the end, life rolls on and the victors are those that learn and grow. Every day is a new chance, and every end is less important than the journey to get there. Having said all that, I do not write angst for the sake of angst. I don't like being jerked around that way when I read so I don't write that way. Thank you, as always, for reading.

Cullen's Roadhouse reviews
Bella Swan has a worthless college degree, bills, two friends, a shitty apartment, and too many ex-boyfriends. Swearing off men seems like a good idea, at least until she can figure out how to pour a proper beer and make some cash at Cullen's Roadhouse. It's an apron that sets her off – an apron, some Levi's, and a tall glass of Diet Coke.
