I am a professor living on the west coast. I grew up on a farm in the Midwest and lived in several places before finally settling down in southern California. I came late to the Twilight party; October 2011. I found out about fan fiction when I read the first book in the FSOG series in May 2012. (I never got around to reading the other 2) I read MoTU instead. When I heard that Fifty was original fan fiction, I thought "What is Fan Fiction?" I had no idea about the different wards or other iterations of Twilight. For the past 4 years, I have enjoyed the many wards and bellas that come to life in wonderful stories. I have also made some great friends in the fandom who share my love for Twilight fan fiction. I am still in the closet in reading FFN and only my immediate family and closest friends know.
I beta for several authors in the fandom and have enjoyed getting to know others. I greatly appreciate these women (and men?) who share their wonderful story writing and take us on adventures with Edward, Bella and the gang.
I have been married for 31 years to my very own Docward and have 2 grown sons. I rescued Vizslas for 15 years and lost my own a year ago. I like to take walks with my friends, babysit their 4-leggers to get my doggy fix and enjoy a challenging crossword puzzle. I have traveled extensively but am a bit of a homebody now. But, you can't beat the lovely weather of southern California.
