Bios are a lot like bumper stickers - TMI.  But, having said that: I am an admitted Twilight obsessed mother of two girls.  I love to write and hope that I am good enough that all these voices in my head are interesting to you guys too.  I am very open minded but I am a little stubborn about taking criticism.  I am working on that.


I live East of San Francisco in a way too heavily populated area that is virtually unaffordable.  But the climate is great, there is lots of culture and plenty of gorgeous landmarks nearby.   


I also have a chocolate lab named Django that half the time I love to death and the other time I want to just take him off the leash and see what happens.


I love Twilighted and can't believe that I lived most of my life without it.  Now that I've found it though I am committed to both reading and if they'll have me, writing as often as I can.

Finally some progress - these two are so dense!

Bella Swan spent the first two years of her life in Forks developing a friendship with Jacob Black that finally turned into something more.  As she begins her senior year of high school, a new family moves to town and Bella slowly begins to question the path she thought her life would follow.  Sometimes there is a difference between what you think you need and what you never knew you wanted.  Takes place during the timeframe of New Moon and Eclipse.  J/B at first, but eventually E/B.

Finally!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Please please update soon!  I am almost as obsessed with your story as I was the original time with Twilight.

 

Thank you - you are a great writer - you get all the emotional stuff so well!

Date: July 20, 2009 Title: Chapter 35: Kissed

Thank you so much for updating - this chapter was well worth the wait.  You are a great writer and are so good at conveying the emotions in a realistic way.  I really understand how Bella is feeling and I am glad that she is both hesistant with Edward but also gives in to her need to be with him.  Very satisfying!  Thank You - I can't wait for the next chapter! 

 
Summary:

Bella Swan meets a beautiful stranger, lawyer Edward Masen on a holiday in Rome. The chemistry is palpable, the sex passionate - and a physical relationship grows into something more. The days fly in a whirlwind of clothes, sand, sex and wine. After a painful realisation that the fantasy has come to an end, Bella returns apprehensively to Seattle, heartbroken at the loss of her love. 


But, little does she know that the 'beautiful stranger' isn't such a stranger, after all.

 

A surprise awaits Bella Swan in Seattle.

 

 

Rated for explicitly detailed sex scenes and language.

 

 

Beautifully accurate banner by the beautifully talented MrsC. Thank you!

Thank you for the sex fest of a story - wow again.  My vagina is hurting just reading this.  I certainly couldn't keep up with this much sex - Bella is on the road to getting a UTI.  ha ha.  Seriously though, I suppose they do need to talk soon and get to know one another better, right?  It sure is fun to read though.

This chapter was a little depressing - is reality going to come crashing down on our two lovers?

Summary:

cover banner

Bella went cliff diving, but it didn't turn out so well. She broke her back. A decade later, Edward reappears in her life on the same night she loses her best friend and husband to a freak accident. Now a graduate student in Women's Studies, Bella isn't thrilled to see him. But when the Cullens re-enter Bella's life, they bring change, hope, and a new joint project that will require all their expertises.

Special Update:

For personal reasons (a ridiculously full teaching schedule and being recently put in charge of a bi-annual local conference and ongoing project), I am no longer able to reply to reviews and questions. But that said, I wanted to give a BIG THANK YOU to EVERYBODY for the wonderful feedback and kind words that have been sent my way since the completion of this story in August 2009. I do still check my messages about once every 1-2 weeks and read *every* review. I just have too many to reply to anymore, but I didn’t want anyone to think I was ignoring her/him in particular, or didn’t appreciate readers taking time to leave a review. Writing this story was tons of fun and I’m thrilled readers seem to enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed the chance to write it. I can’t tell you how flattering that is!!! As I used to reply to all reviews, I feel a little badly about this decision, but work has been requiring virtually all of my time since the new (academic) year began.

Best to all of you in 2010 and beyond!

I'm still getting used to your variation on the story.  Some of the elements that I love about Twilight have yet to be introduced so I don't have many comments. But, I am intrigued and I hope Bella wont be in a wheelchair forever!  It's hard to imagine though that she could find her way back to the Cullens after so many years alone - going an entirely different direction.

 
Reviewer: lislar Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: August 02, 2009 Title: Chapter 9: Chapter 9

I can't help but feel like you have taken all the romance and magic out of the love story.  It's almost as if you are trying hard to make the story real - to imagine how all the characters would react in real life.  I hate reality that is why I love Twilight.  It is a little painful to read.  I don't want to hear about Bella's double chin.  But you are a good writer and I will keep reading.



Author's Response:

That's exactly what I'm trying to do.  I want the story to be real, believable.  I think there's a lot of REAL magic in the world, real love, not fantasy love, and that's what I've struggled to give here.  I know some readers are really in it for the fantasy, but I was put off by that, personally.  I'm more attracted by a story where I can really imagine it *could happen*.  If a story is TOO wishfulfillment, it actually depresses me because I know that's never happening to *me*.  Nobody will ever love *me* like that because I'm just me, not super-fantastic-special.  So who cares?  The Beautiful People always have life work out swell for them.  I want to care about characters I can relate to. :-)

Yes, it is.  Like cleaning a wound.
