I'm a 32 year old mother of 1 son (8). Married to my hubby for 11 years. I joke that he's my human love, but that Edward will forever be my fictional boyfriend.  My son jokingly tells me "Mom you can be a vampire all you want, but me and dad are normal" :)  - Gotta love that!

I've always had an interest in writing, and finally decided to throw caution to the wind and give it a shot. So I'm working on my first Y.A. Novel now as well as playing with Steph M's characters here.

WOW!!!! That was something else - LOL :P

I was literally buckled over in laughter.. amazing job.. I love when Jasper pulled out the Bandana.. I nearly pee'd my pants laughing at the visual of him all patriotic, and then again when Edward smacks them because of the "voices"...

Amazingly entertaining!!!

Summary: Feature


Edward Cullen needs to pass Statistics. Bella Swan is his tutor. She thinks he's a flighty, arrogant--albeit sexy--asshole, and he thinks she's Bipolar, but tries to win her over, anyway.

Can he change her mind, or do first impressions really last?

With Jasper's roommate out of town, Bella has his nice big bed all to herself. Until Edward comes home in the middle of the night...

Another great chapter. I was pleasantly surprised to notice how many local "standouts" that Edward and Bella visited. I've actually been to many of those places myself and you described them really well. Echo Lake was one of the most beautiful places I've ever been, and I had the same reaction to the perma-frost that Bella did at a few places we visited. Anyway, just thought that was really cool to recognize and TRULY get the visual of them visitng those awesome places. Can't wait for your next installment!

I've loved your story since Ch 1, and I'm in for the long haul, even when R.L. causes lulls and lags... we all know that it happens. Love the characters you've created and the direction that this is all going. Keep inspired, and motivated, because there are those of us out here who are still very intrigued with your imagination :D

And in between your brilliance here, I would be thoroughly honored if you'd check out my story and give me your thoughts, and any pointers :) It's titled: Crooked Halo's and Ink Junkies.

Love it, and keep up the great work!

Fractured Hearts by cfmom Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 2410]

We've all turned the pages on the four blank months in New Moon. Edward left Bella in the woods and told her didn't want her anymore; his arrogance expected that she would just move on with her life. What he never expected was that she wouldn't be able to move on any more than he would. An angry Bella is something he couldn't fathom. What he didn't take into account is that Bella believes that true love is worth fighting for, and she's going to fight to keep Edward and her family. The Cullen abandonment hurt her deeply, but she's turned that pain into rage. What will happen when Bella decides to let them know she's not willing to let them walk away and leave her behind? How will they handle one mere human girl that's extremely pissed off, and willing to do whatever takes to bring them back? The saying "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned" has never rang more true. Bella's angry and on the warpath. Not even a clan of vampires will be able to stop her.

Fractured Hearts

"My heart may have fractured when he left me, but I adamantly refuse to let it shatter. I'm stronger than that, and I'm ready to get nasty. This is going to be a side your family has never seen out of me. I hope you're prepared, because when I'm done taking your stupid, arrogant brother down a few notches, I'm coming after you. Yes, you heard me correctly. You may be small, fast, and graceful, but I'm filled with enough rage at this point to go vampire on your pixie, ballerina ass!"  ~Bella - Chapter 2: Voicemails

Thank you. I'm already started on the next chapter and it will turn around much more quickly than the last several. Thanks for hanging in there with me. As always, I appreciate the read and review. =)



Bella Swan had big dreams.  You know what they say, the bigger they are the harder they fall.  When her life takes a sad turn she is forced to do whatever she can just to keep her head above water.  Edward Cullen's life is perfect.  Well, almost.  Perhaps these two can help each other out in an unorthodox way.

Really cool chapter... I liked the game they played even though it pissed Edward off, because it's forcing him to show his true colors... I don't think he'll make it through the weekend without letting Bella know that he's for real about her... but not before Jessica stirs up some mess :)

Can't wait for the next Chapter, please update soon :)

Author's Response:

Glad you enjoyed it.  Yeah, the game really made Edward see red.  He kissed her in the room to help him 'erase' the image of the other kisses from his mind.  Poor guy.  Hasn't had genuine feeling for a girl in ten years and now this happens.

Ummm okay... I LOVE LOVE LOVE your story... but have to admit that I thought it ended in a weird spot... not really a cliffie, not really closure... just kind of in the middle there.

I loved the time line, and how you progressed the situations, it was very believable... and wth? Is Kathleen living with Edward now? I'm a little confused? It just says they're dating, not that she's moved in... would she be spending the night to where he could "jostle" her if she weren't living with him.

Seriously can't wait for the next chapter to clear some things up for me :)


Author's Response:

You are not the only person to notice this.  The chapter originally had three more scenes in it, but was getting unwieldy so I cut it off where it wasn't supposed to end.  I think that's why you're getting that sence.  Thank you for reading and reviewing.



The summer before her junior year in college, Bella moves to be closer to her father. All the while adding some much needed space from her crazed frat-boy ex-boyfriend. Being there for her father comes with the fresh start she needs. (One without men to complicate it) Until, one evening after her shift the most gorgeous man she has ever laid eyes on...comes to her aid. He causes Bella to almost forget the vow she's taken against the opposite sex. Almost. That is until the realization that he's a frat boy and she's never going there again. No matter how those intense green eyes make her feel.

What will happen when Bella transfers to the University of Washington and meets a handsome coed, Edward? Will she find peace from her past or be stuck playing the part?

Ok I could be waaay off here.. but I'm thinking the ?POV stalker isn't out for Bella.... I was thinking it could be one of Edward's prior conquests that wanted more from him, and now Bella's in the way... so the only reason to stalk her would be to get rid of her so that Edward is once again available and undistracted.

Could be completely wrong, but that's the vibe I'm getting...

Love, Love, Love and Hate, Hate, Hate - how careful you are as not to give away the Gender of the ?POV stalker...

I'm also kinda creeped out with the Cop... he has way too much interest in Bella... just weird.

She was standing by the bar looking beautiful. I hadn't seen her in two years. She smiled at me and tried to say hi. I couldn't say anything to her. Memories were racing through my mind, of a time when we were happy...

On a Lonesome Road by valeri29 Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 503]
Summary: Feature


Thanks to RavynNightstorm for the fantastic banner.


During her freshman year, Bella Swan's mother forces her to join the Forks High band.  Instead of the torture Bella was expecting, she actually meets the five people who will become the best friends of her life.  But amid the flirting, jokes, and pranks, something unexpected happens to Bella.  She finds herself unable to escape one devastating mistake and fears her life is over the age of fifteen. AU/AH.  

One is not free to make mistakes in a small town like Forks.  The tiniest misstep, the smallest indiscretion is fair game for the gossip mill for years.  And the mistake I had made was certainly not a small one.  I would never be able to escape the shadow of what I had done; and worst of all, absolutely everyone knew about it.

There will be no teen pregnancy or illegal drug use in this story.  Anything else that could realistically happen in a high school setting is a possibility.

Okay... *ducking behind my chair, so I don't get smacked*.. but... is it just me or does this all seem a little too adult for a group of 16 yr olds? Admittedly it's been a while since I was 16...(I'm 31 btw) ... I'm thinking to Tanya's attack in the library when she tells Bella "how long have you been effing him?" or something like that... my first thought was whoa... seriously?... I LOVE LOVE LOVE the story, and where it's going... I just found it a little unrealistic... but maybe the times have just changed that much...

I guess all 16/17 even 18 yrs olds think they are so adult... until you get 31 and look back over your life and think... damn I was just a kid!

Okay... so I officially feel like an old fogie... but nevertheless, I love the story. Keep up the good work.

Still loving the story, but honestly getting a little bored with the Felix/Bella drama...  It's all kind of unecessary in a way (unless you've got some tricky scheme going down that isn't obvious right now). I mean if she's gonna break Edward's heart she could just do it and get it over with, she doesn't have to be whoring around... but it's your baby and I'm just along for the ride, so I'm hanging on to see where it goes...

I mean all of that with complete love by the way... ;)  I think I'm just frustrated for Edward... he doesn't deserve what she's doing... lol :D

Keep up the good work!
