Author has written 12 stories for Twilight.

I really have no idea what I'm doing. I've lurked on this sight for years, too shy to comment, and now I have the gall to try to write a story.

So, I had so much fun posting my first story, I thought I'd try again.

I have loved the response to what I have offered here. I read every review with glee. I can't promise to always reply but I do appreciate receiving them. But for however much I love to get them, I don't want anyone to feel obligated to give them. You don't owe me reviews, you don't owe me a review for every chapter or every story I write. I offer up a story and expect nothing in return.

But I will make a promise. Barring unforeseen calamities, I will stick to a posting schedule and I will finish my story.

I'm stuck, blocked, stumped by Uncredited, but I'll come back to as soon as I can. The story is not abandoned and passive-aggressive guilt tripping won't make it post any faster.

Thank you.

A Servant Wife reviews
It certainly wasn't in his plans when he woke that morning but somehow, someway, Edward Masen left his farm one late spring morning to stock up on supplies with his children and came home with a new wife. Not a real wife, like the I'll love you to the ends of time kind of wife, but a servant who was also his wife on paper, kind of half of each.

It began, as many great love stories do, with a complete misunderstanding. He called me a whore and I embarrassed him in front of others. You know, typical boy meets girl.
