I'm a part time accountant, full time wife and mommy.  My hubby and I have been blessed with a beautiful daughter and a precious infant son.

I used to write incessantly back in high school and college, even going so far as to have several poems and short stories published... but life got in the way and I fell out of the habit.  As with most talents, when you don't use it, you lose it.  I always regretted the loss of the words...

Being on maternity leave when my son was born in March of 2009, and then having my hours cut to part time left me with a LOT of time on my insomniac hands, and I started reading all of the wonderful stories here at Twilighted.

Somewhere in a sleep deprived fog I was listening to a Heidi Newfield song and had an overwhelming desire to start writing again... and my first fanfic story idea was born.  I've since started a second story, and I'm alternating back and forth on getting them written. 

I'm hoping to have the first one finished and start submitting soon, but I have to go back and do a massive rewrite on three chapters because PPD kind of took the story places it wasn't meant to go.


Twilight-wise... I am an E/B girl all the way.  I just realized that in everything I have written or am working on, if Nessie isn't part of the story then Jacob is the bad guy.  Sorry wolf=packers... no Furry love here.


**I have a curse.  I have these awesome stories, I get 20 or so chapters in and then I can't finish.  Still trying.  I know I promised to alert a few people if I ever got to the point of posting...**


**Well, I'm still trying to get over the speedbumbs in Unrequited, but my other multi-chapter needs massive reworking.  The post partum depression that initially derailed me did too much structural damage to that story and I need to basically start over on it.  I think I'll wait til after Unrequited is being posted though...  It's all just a big mash in my head.**


**I think I made a breakthrough in my multi-chap!  WooHoo, go me!  So recap... Multi-chap that is about 75% done now, another one that is languishing until I can figure out how to fix all of the damage my PPD caused it, and three one shots that I work on when I get stuck on chapters.  Good thing I only sleep three hours a night or I'd never get anything done!  GO TEAM INSOMNIACS!**


PS:  Just in case anybody wonders... I have a hard time reviewing a story before it's complete.  I can love it with a fiery passion and still not be able to reveiw it effectively.  If I'm reading a story of yours, be patient with me... you'll hear from me at some point I promise!!!!!!

Hypothesis: Vampires are capable of vertical inheritance.




  1. Finish knocking Jasper up, for the third time. Why? Because a story is not complete without a parity for Jasper.

  2. Knock up Emmett and Rosalie too. Why? Because it’s their way of dealing with the loss of a child.

  3. Rebuild vampire society after the war, including the transition to an egg-laying society and the adoption of eggs that were orphaned by the war.

  4. Move the Cullens back into human civilization and send the kids to middle school, so that they can learn to interact with humans and blend in.

  5. Send Masen to speech therapy with the humans so that he can learn to talk.

  6. Send Jasper back in time, with the aid of his time-traveling twins, to meet his human family and resolve any lingering issues he still has from his convergence.

  7. Accuse Jasper of being sexually attracted to his grandmother and bring up this accusation as many times as possible. Why? Because it’s the new running gag.

  8. Make entire story one hundred percent biologically accurate, despite the vampires.

  9. Tell a bunch of Cullenesque stories and make it funny, because that which is funniest is best.

What if Twilight were twisted around a bit? What if Edward already had Bella? What if Carlisle was the odd-man-out?

Esme Allen is an Architecture Instructor at Forks High School. When Emmett Cullen and Rosalie Hale chronically ignore the school's PDA policy, she decides that it's time for a parent-teacher conference.

Carlisle Cullen is the father, for all intents and purposes, of six perpetual teenagers: Edward and Bella, Emmett and Rosalie, Alice and Jasper. His children have found love, but Carlisle in 350+ years is still without a mate. He has no idea what Emmett and Rosalie could possibly have done to merit a meeting with their teacher. Little does he know, fate works in weird ways.

Added side note: I will not end this story until I've created a happily ever after for them all!

Rated R for violence.

Added 10-29-15: After a horribly long hiatus, I am back to writing this story.

Hypothesis: Vampires are capable of vertical inheritance.




  1. Get Jasper knocked up at least three times in one story. Why? Because it is not nearly as funny to knock up any of the other vampires. And since female vampires are just as hard to knock up as males, might as well go all the way and choose Jasper.

  2. Knock up all the other Cullens while I am at it. Why? Because I can’t think of a good reason why Jasper would be any more knocked up than the rest of them. Maybe Emmett would be… but Emmett is not as funny.

  3. Accuse Edward of having a sexual relationship with his piano and bring up this accusation as many times as possible without Bella finding out.

  4. End in a war between the Cullens and the Volturi, because the Volturi think Carlisle is lying about vampires laying eggs. Why? Because it is the funniest reason for a war I can think of.

  5. Explain vampire genetics, using plasmids, in a way that is one hundred percent compatible with everything ever said by Stephenie Meyer about vampires.

  6. Explain how vampires can reproduce vertically without violating the “vampires cannot change” law of vampiredom.

  7. Make entire story one hundred percent biologically accurate, despite the vampires. Why? Because I’m a biologist.

  8. Tell a bunch of Cullenesque stories and make it funny, because that which is funniest is best.

Recently nominated for a hidden star award.

A banner i made for a story.


The Volturi have been defeated and the Cullens move to Australia.

There, they discover that sometimes love isn't hard. Sometimes you don't have to go through obstacles to be with the person you love. Sometimes, love is as easy as breathing. 

This is the love story of a blind girl, Lexi, and Jacob and Renesmee's daughter, Zoe, and the surprising effects that it has on Rosalie.

Because sometimes we don't want drama.

Summary: Feature


Bella and Edward have been pen pals (the traditional kind, pen and paper stuff) for over a decade, but they never met for reasons even they didn’t know. After fourteen years of “courting through the postal service” and not realizing it, Bella gets engaged to Emmett, a fellow lawyer at the prestigious firm of Ateara, Call, and Uley. They move fast, and a wedding is set for a mere four months after they get engaged. Bella invites Edward to the wedding, wanting to finally meet her longtime friend, and when things go sour the night of the rehearsal dinner, Bella, in her shock, ends up in Edward’s arms. And this is all just the tip of the iceberg for these two…

Rated NC-17 for mature sexual content. Little to no bad language.
