Author has written 7 stories for Twilight.

I am a 'happy hanging out on the fringes' kind of woman, hate to be in the spotlight, so it's hard to know what to put here.

I'm into story. I like to think about how stories shape our culture and how we shape our stories. Edward and Bella have a story that resonates with women across so many boundaries. I love both the essence of their story and the way it connects us, completely overthrowing the dissonance of age and culture.

I think Rob is very beautiful, bright, extraordinarily talented and sweet, but he's not why I'm here. Just so you know. I do see the appeal, though!

My other interest in this fandom is literacy. I understand literacy to be a fundamental human right and a means to access power. I'm fascinated by the literacy of social media and by the exchange that I see happening here, within the Fanfic universe. I get so excited by the way people happily give their skills to one another, whether as story tellers or as editors and teachers.

I'm having a little R&R from the fandom, so if you don't hear from me, or I don't respond to you, it's not because I stopped loving or appreciating you - please don't be hurt. There's no drama, promise.

I am @Gingerandgreen on Twitter.

I had a Fandom Facebook account, but I put it on hold, for reasons.

A website to visit: FicSisters at the International House of Fanfic - for fic and related lit reviews and information, found at

Plight Thee won the Golden Onion award on Rob Attack's Fanfiction Fridays!

Here's a banner for Plight Thee My Troth made by the awesome and wonderful Cared.

Here is a fabulous blinkie made by the same treasure, Cared.

A statue of Lord Davidward (a fabulous manip) by the brilliant Robshandmonkey - a must see.

Kimberley Diamond won some awards in the Mine To Mark Contest 2013!

Chapter 6 of Kimberley Diamond refers to this song:

Translations: sometimes people ask whether they can translate my stories into other languages. I usually go and explore the requester's profile, and say yes. When I put my stories up here, they are for you. I don't feel ownership of them - they are a gift, should you want them. So I'm happy for you to take them and put them into any language you want. I'd like to know what happens to them, though. No one has ever come back to me and said, 'this many Spanish readers liked your story, and these people hated it'; or 'I tried to translate your story, but it was too much work, so I gave up'; or 'you worded your permission so strangely, I decided not to persue it'. I think that would be polite, don't you? I'm not judging - this is a brave new world we are navigating, and we're all getting some things right and some things wrong. :)
