Author has written 17 stories for Twilight.

Capricorn75 and VampiresHaveLaws are excited to announce their brand-spankin' new collaboration:

The HO HEY Contest, inspired by the song "Ho Hey" by The Lumineers.

You know, that achingly beautiful song that's pretty much perfect in every way.

Have a listen, or two (or if you're like us, 20) here: Ho Hey

We want to read your take on the song.

There's a lot of story told—and hinting to be told—in that little masterpiece; we want you to write it!

Whether you're inspired by the feel of the song, or want to write a story based literally on the lyrics themselves, is up to you.

Give us your best interpretation!

Three Days reviews
The Cullens are all mortals. But such a minor difference does nothing to alter one of the greatest love stories in the Twilight universe. Three days, equivalent to the time required for a vampire transformation. Three days in a Doctor's life. AU, some swear words.

Next To Me reviews
Self-proclaimed cat lady Bella meets crappy songwriter Edward in a musty bar, and they hit it off right away. Literally. "Let's go stop your grandpa bassist from marrying my drunk roommate." Attempted fluff & humor ensue through a night full of crappy bands, awkward rambles, bad jokes, and a four-letter word.

A Bus To Chinatown reviews
I love the middle of the bus because you can see where you're going just as equally as where you've been. Except when it turns corners. This is my story about pen pals, rocking chairs, and becoming best friends with a girl I'd never met.
