A glitch is preventing TwiliteAddict and I from responding to reviews for our co-authored stories. Please know we value and appreciate each and every one and will be replying just as soon as we can!! Thanks for your patience and reviews! :D
I'm a wife, mother of two, and business owner who used to be a prospective whale biologist in Washington (not too far from the Olympic Peninsula--I can see Port Angeles from here on a clear day!). I met my then Stage Manager husband in the local theater while playing the role of a vampire (Dracula's Lucy) and my life was forever changed! Needless to say, drama comes naturally to both my kids, and they are the inspriation that keeps me moving. Reading, and now writing Twi-fic, is what's keeping me sane with the otherwise absolute lack of needed creativity in my life right now.
Despite having played a Vampire in a local production of "Dracula" I had not heard of "Twilight" until the movie came out. Go figure. My typical cuppa is Sci-Fi/Fantasy, not Romance and never before vamp fiction, so my RL friends and family find it histerical that this genre has sucked me in so deeply! :D I have a google search for "Best Twilight Fan Fiction" to thank for finding the fandom in the first place.
I came for the lemons, but have stayed for the creativity. And boy, am I glad I did!!!
I chose RosaBella as my penname over on ff dot net, because I have a classic look that strongly resembles Rosalie, I love working on my Mustang with my father (having rebuilt it with him awile back- and didn't mind smelling to high heaven of gasoline and gear oil for 6 straight weeks to do it), but am Bella to my core.

Thanks for reading!!
If you're worried I've abandoned Forbidden Desire, don't! I WILL finish it, but I do have to appologise for the beyond sloth-like update times! I just cleared my plate and it has my full attention now (and I think my Beta and two friends just got out the whips!) so hang in there, it's coming! :D
