ABOUT THE AUTHOR
My name is Amy and I’m a South Jersey girl, living Southern California so I get to attend a lot of Twilight related events. I’m an all around fangirl, not just Twilight, but Twilight rules my fanfiction writing. I'm Team Esme and Team Carlisle.
Follow me on twitter @OhMyCarlisle and check out my mostly Carlisle and Esme dedicated tumblr, Adventures in Cullenland. I also role play Esme Cullen.
I tend to avoid reading fanfiction canon stories so they don't influence what I have planned for The Esme Chronicles. I have bookmarked many stories that I look forward to reading when I'm done writing. Most of the stories I have favorited are lemony and are usually canon characters in non-canon situations/relationships.
My #1 source for Twilight research and information is the Twilight Lexicon. I also use the novels and now The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide. Please note, that I outlined The Esme Chronicles a year and half before the official guide was published. The history of Carlisle and Esme in The Esme Chronicles is based on Steph’s telling of their story in the Correspondence with Stephenie on the Lexicon, not the official guide.
I was a Sunflower Award nominee for Master of Lemons in spring 2011.
Check out my August 2011 TwiFicDataBase Author Interview.
If you write a review or ask a question I will always respond.
My beta team for The Esme Chronicles is MelissaMargaret, sweetishbubble, and batgirll8968.
My fabulous fic sister is December.LeNoir. She's great for my ego and talks me through the difficult writing times.

Esme's engagement ring from Carlisle and the details behind why I chose that ring.
I was looking for pictures of brides from that time and found one of a bride named Evelyn was married on the same date I chose as Carlisle and Esme’s wedding day. I’ve also included pictures of Edward’s gifts.
