I love reading fan fic ... so many talented writers that keep the time I spend online (most of the time as I am severely disabled and cannot move out of bed) enthralling and entertaining

Before my accident I was (among other duties) a proof reader. Mainly reports etc. but that has given me a good background for spotting grammatical errors as well as spelling errors.

I do not write as I am sure nobody would be interested, to say I lack imagination is an understatement. I have tried to write but suffice it to say my attempts lacked content.

As I do not write I am unable to register as a beta reader but if anyone wants a proof reader with time on her hands then I am your girl :)

My main interest are Twilight and Fifty Shades but love original works too. I have a few favourite authors who occasionally use the characters from a book but take me on a journey far removed from the original books.

I have 2 children and 2 grandchildren. I also have 1 dog and 1 cat. All of the above have ambitions to drive me insane so I tend to escape to the world of fan fiction to keep my sanity

Thanks to all the writers out there, I am sure many people have said it before but I am saying it again. Your efforts are very much appreciated and we are grateful for the time you spend keeping us amused.

Karen :D
