Author has written 13 stories for Twilight, and Walking Dead.

I’m a thirty-something wife and mother who spends her spare time writing down all the ideas floating around in her head.
Those stories come from my obsessions—they consist of vampires, zombies, and other things that go bump in the night.
I also love horror movies, and I've seen a vast majority of them. Nothing really scares me anymore.

Most of my stories may have been based on the Twilight series, but I have many interests. Right now, The Walking Dead owns me completely. I'm also a
big fan of Boondock Saints--loved it since I first saw the movie in 2000. So, it's probably not a surprise that I'm a Norman Reedus fan.

I'm probably more tolerant than most readers when it comes to grammar in stories. My first one is still riddled with mistakes that will be corrected when
I have the time. However, the one thing I run from is Mary Sue fics. Interesting characters have flaws...it's what makes them appealing.

If you'd like to translate any of these stories, please ask in a PM. I'm still not sure how I feel about it. But you have my permission to save any of them in electronic form (PDF, MOBI, EPUB); knock yourself out. Just give me credit.
