Author has written 22 stories for Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Twilight, and Hunger Games.

I'm the typical fan of fantasy/realism books, movies, tv shows, etc. I was a big fan of the television show Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Charmed, etc. As for books I was into The Chronicles of Narnia, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Twilight, The Hunger Games, and of course the movies that went along with them (well, Twilight movies sort of went downhill for me. Hmph.)

I have always written for pleasure, but the past six years or so, I became a little more dedicated and now call myself a writer. I would love to have my novel published one day and plan to self-publish a few short (and sorta short) e-books. I will let everyone know in case you're interested! For fun, though, I gave fanfiction a try and found it to be a good practice tool, entertaining, and I have met some awesome people because of it.

I am by and far a Team Jacob person. I had felt more sympathy with Jacob because of how much he suffered, how much he loved Bella, and I think he was better for her and made her a better person. And I thoroughly love his character. I don't *despise* Edward, but I don't think she should have ended up with him.

As far as me, I'm your standard dreamer, anti-social, obsessive writer. And I reside in the U.S. in Pennsylvania. =)
