Author has written 10 stories for Twilight, and Vampire Diaries.
Hello there, and welcome to my profile page! Thanks for stopping by!
I guess I should tell you a bit about myself...I am a stay-at-home wife and mother to a wonderful husband and a pretty darn awesome teenager! I've lived in the deep south most of my life and currently reside in North Carolina.
I discovered the world of fanfiction after I read the Twilight saga. I remember checking out message boards on the Twilight Lexicon and it led me to this site. I enjoyed the first book of the series tremendously. However, Breaking Dawn was a little disappointing to me, to be honest. I love seeing all the various stories on here that create an alternate universe (AU) with the characters. I also love reading the non-canon pairings; usually Bella with someone else besides Edward or Jacob. Bella and Jasper stories tend to be my favorites in that verse.
Crossover stories are what I'm most fond of reading and writing (more on that later). I always felt that Bella was not given a lot of options in Forks and I take such a delight seeing her in another world, in different places with some familiar faces. It makes me smile to see her paired with another character from a fandom I enjoy. Tony Stark, Peter Parker, Eric Northman, Godric, Chris Halliwell, and Jax Teller are some my beloved characters. Of course, I would love to find a really good story that pairs her with Angel or Spike, but have yet to find one. A Neal Caffery story would just about rock my world, too.
As you can see by the stories I write, I also love The Vampire Diaries. If you haven't guessed, Damon Salvatore is my favorite character. Not only do I enjoy reading stories where he is the main lead, I also love writing him (again, more on that later). I particularly like to read stories where he is paired with an original character (OC) or a character from another show/book/movie; especially Bella from Twilight. He is such an intriguing character and it was because of fanfiction that I discovered him and watched the TV show. I know you're probably wondering if I had living been under a rock, but the answer is "no." I just don't watch a lot of television, I would just rather read a good book. Needless to say, Damon's sarcastic sense of humor, his charm and his good looks drew me in. He's an enigma. He became my muse that scratched the writing itch I've had for a very long time.
I started writing in spiral notebooks, never intending to publish anything. Then one day, there was a writing contest hosted by Kittyinaz. I wrote the story, Reflections and entered it. I never expected people to like it, so I was quite shocked when I came in third. From there, my journey as a fanfiction writer begun. I do mostly write Twilight/TVD crossovers because I think Bella and Damon fit so well together - its a pairing I truly enjoy writing. I will be branching out in the near future with other pairings and fandoms. Now that I am comfortable writing, I also plan to create my own characters within the fandoms and someday, I plan to write an original work of fiction all my own.
My plans make take time, because I suffer from depression and anxiety. That is one of the reasons I am so slow in updating - I really need to take a moment here and thank my readers for being extremely patient and supportive. The kind reviews and PM's I have received over the past couple years really do bolster my spirits. I feel nothing but gratitude for the kindness and encouragement I've received.
A lot of people have asked what inspires me to write. Well, most of my inspiration comes from music. I've always believed that music feeds the soul - it has the power to make our heart sing. I listen to a little bit of everything from Classical to Heavy Metal. If you notice the titles on a couple of my stories, you'll see I am a fan of INXS. The only kind of music I'm not a major fan of is rap, but I'll tolerate it in small doses.
I mentioned before that I don't really watch television, but I am an avid reader. My older brother would swear I was born with a book in my hand. My favorite authors are Jackie Collins, Anne Rice, L.M. Montgomery, Stephan King, Sidney Sheldon, Mario Puzo, John Grisham, Thomas Harris, and Richard Paul Evans. There are many others, but those are at the ones I read the most. I also have quite a few favorite authors on this site, as well.
I may not watch TV often, but I do have a few favorite shows. Those are White Collar, Grace & Frankie, Blue Bloods, Arrow, Bones, and of course, The Vampire Diaries. Some older shows I binge-watch (Thank you Netflix!) are House M.D., Charmed, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Quantum Leap. I also love Touched By An Angel and thirtysomething (that show came on at midnight on Lifetime when I was a kid and I adored it). I'm also a major fan of any Law & Order shows. I loved Grey's Anatomy for quite some time, too. That is, until the writers started killing off my favorite characters! Its the same reason I stopped watching ER years ago, too. Sex and the City is another show I enjoy.
Well, enough about me. All I have left to add is that I have a blog, A Writer's Corner on WordPress. If you can't find it, Google my penname and you should be able to find it that way. Feel free to check it out!

To my lovely readers:
I do know that I’ve been silent quite awhile. I have been fighting my battle with depression and thought I was winning. I was finally, FINALLY seeing that light at the end of the tunnel. It was a nice feeling, to be honest.
Without going into too much detail, I will just bluntly say, “shit happens.” Now I feel as though I’ve been plunged back into the darkness once more. It is almost like I’m drowning and struggling to stay afloat. Because of that, I can not see myself writing anymore. It was once something that ignited my creativity and I had a passion for it.
I’ve tried to ignite it, and it worked to a certain extent. Granted, I don’t think what I have is fit to be published, but its there in all its glory stored on Microsoft Word. Perhaps someday in the distant future I will edit what I have and hit that publish button. As of now, they won’t be seeing the light of day anytime soon.
You may wonder why. The short answer would be this, no matter how crudely put – Depression is a bitch of epic proportions. Certain events in my life this past year have only served to make it worse. My little family has had a couple of small crises that I’d rather not delve into here, and there have been other issues I’ve had to deal with. Needless to say, writing is the farthest thing from my mind. Not to mention I’ve now lost my zeal for it.
Some days, I felt like I was battling my demons and winning. I can’t say that is the case right now. It seems Mr. Depression is winning this round. Its taking everything I have to hold on for my husband and my son. I’m hanging by a thread at the moment, but at least its something.
So, with all that in mind, I have decided to put off writing for indeterminate amount of time. I have to focus on my little family and on myself. It is the only way I can see myself fighting off this depression. The decision is not an easy one as I know there are many of you who have been waiting for updates. I know I’ve let you down and I’m sorry. But for once in my life; I have to think of me.
I do want to thank each and every one of you who have read my stories, left a review, voted for me in a contest and/or sent me the sweetest PM’s, offering kind words of encouragement. All of you have been like stars shining brightly onto the midnight blue sky for me. Your support has made me smile and sustained me in ways I could never express in words. Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope that someday we shall meet again!
