A bio. Let me see...
I'm a more "mature" Twilight addict, living in the suburbs of Chicago. I work hard, play hard, and really only relax lately by writing fanfic. I'm single, a rabid Chicago White Sox fan, a musical mish-mash (including the 80s and classical), and a tomboy - golf being my addiction at present. Vodka martini's, extra dirty, blue cheese olives my vice of choice.
My dream is to meet RPatz and have a smoke with him in a dark alley. Rob, please PM me here when you're in Chicago. I've got just the place...
I also dream of writing a trilogy someday, fiction, but unabashedly romantic, and slightly auto-biographical, about the colorful past of my maternal ancestry. Something with a happy ending. I haven't had mine. Yet.
My fic "Of Swans and Silence" just won the Judges pick for the Darkella's Darkest Temptation Contest held by the genius of the girls over at "The Temptation of the Naughty Muses", a combined effort of The Twilight Muses, Jasper's Naughty Girls, and Darkest Temptations. (If you're into everything Jasper, or everything naughty, or both, you should check these ladies out.) To say I was shocked would be the largest of understatements. It was my first-ever contest. The fic is not for everyone, though, and I highly suggest if you're not over 18, or if you're my mother, that you DO NOT read it. It's over at ff.net, but I will be posting it here just as soon as possible.
"Second Chances" is my first endeavor into fanfic, and my baby. Charlie is the reason I started writing, this fic being born out of the need to give him his due. His opportunity. It is a labor of love and continues.
"I Will Love You" won the "Pop My Cherry" contest, an idea for a fic that I'd requested from my stellar mentor, fngrcufs, who promptly turned around and told me to write it myself - more eloquently and diplomatic than that, however. (Please do go read her stuff on ff.net. The Story of Us will make you weep. I did.) It is posted over at ff.net as well.
Finally, if you'll allow, I want to just give a permanent shout-out here to my superb friend, Alexis Danaan. If it weren't for her, Second Chances would never have been posted.
