Hi and welcome to my bio!


Out here in the real world, I'm an INTJ (according to the MBTI) with delusions of grandeur. My educational and employment backgrounds are varied, but I do have an advanced degree and have worked at all sorts of jobs.  I occupy myself as a novelist, writing historical and inspirational fiction, as well as short stories from time to time.  Married for more than twenty years, I have two sons and enjoy all my guys immensely.


In the fandom, I write Canon and AU, sometimes venturing into the All-Human territory.  One-shots, multi-chapters, stand-alones and series, there is little I haven't tried - for me, the fandom is a land of What Ifs in the Twiverse.

Summary:

A birthday gift for u2shay, who requested "Historical, Dark Carlisle" from my hand.

Banner by FrozenSoldier, whom I thank most exuberantly!

Carlisle Cullen's ability to work as a physician, handling blood and intermingling intimately with humans, is already the stuff of legend in the world of the Vampires.  He is revered or reviled, but his family holds him in high honor.

This is the story of how he manages.

Summary:

Light, fluffy, SHORT Regency Romance. In which former India merchant Edward meets shiny new heiress Isabella who has been waiting FOREVER to get her London Season. He's far too knowing; she's impulsive and suspicious.

Of course, it has to be love!

 

Excerpt from Part the Second:

 

"Yes... The gentlemen at White's place wagers on a great many things. Some are races, but other things," he added with a smile, "are entirely frivolous."

And races aren't frivolous? Isabella wondered, her eye tracing the line of Mr. Cullen's jaw as it relaxed with his returning easy humor. She felt herself relax as well, just because he seemed to be doing so. Extraordinary. "So there is a large volume at White's where gentlemen record their wagers. What does that have to do with the Marks brothers?"

Mr. Cullen pursed his lips before saying, "Allow me, if you would, Miss Swan, to stop at the next shady spot we come across, so I can better give you my attention."

Summary:

Bella was changed by Aro in Italy in 1900. She escapes and finds herself in the Pacific Northwest toward the end of World War II. She meets Levi Uley and the two of them develop a relationship that will last for decades...

And that's not the end of the story.

 

Banner by Raggdoll of Twilight

Excerpt from Chapter Fifteen: Coven

 

"Where are the rest of you?" she asked in a quiet voice she knew he would hear anyway.

The stranger halted twenty-seven feet from the tree where she watched. His head tilted to find her, unerringly. His eyes were golden. "I'm not here to hunt," he said first. "I didn't expect to find you here. I'm Carlisle Cullen and I was passing through to meet with the chief of the Quileute people, as per an old arrangement."

Excerpt from Chapter 3:

 

Bella spun en pointe, her hair whirling about her lithe form like a veil. A dark veil that gave tantalizing evidence of secrets hidden. She studied me through her lashes as her eyes went from dark gold to black with desire. "You did invest, buying this. Just in case you wondered."

I rose to take her into my arms, lifting her with my hands at her waist – as a dancer might his partner. "Best investment I'll likely make all year. So what else was in that mysterious package?"

Carlisle comes to Forks before the rest of the Cullens, meeting Bella Swan – predictably – in the ER.  Their romance is allowed to flourish away from the rest of the Cullen family...until Edward catches her scent.

Summary:

Imprinting. Is it a blessing or a curse?  Jacob Black couldn't tell you.  So far, imprinting has been responsible for a whole lot of heartache, from what he can see and what he's experienced.

If you have been reading my Imprinting: The Mating Imperative series, then you'll know just where he's coming from.

If you have not, I would highly recommend you read at least The Hardest Part and Wolf Girls 101 from that series before diving in here.  Don't worry, Jacob will still be here when you get back.

Excerpt from Chapter Four:

She looked up at me from behind the steering wheel, her expression poised between tenderness and curiosity.  “I keep thinking I’ll wake up, Edward.  I hope I’m not dreaming. I don’t think I could bear waking up again.”

In an instant, I was kneeling beside her, her face cupped in my palm.  The heat from her skin was a delicious sensation, the burning in my throat its inevitable price, but one I was more than willing to pay.  “You’re awake, love,” I murmured fervently, willing her to trust me though I didn’t really deserve it. I would try to earn that trust back. I had to.  “You are.  I’ll never be far from you again, if you’ll let me stay.”

The Wolfpack is growing and the phenomenon of imprinting is spreading more broadly than anticipated! 

Megs' Banner WG 101

Banner by MegsD

To help out the new imprints, Emily Uley – newly wed First Imprint – is putting together a little guidebook.  Written for introductory and reference purposes, Wolf Girls 101 is intended to provide insight, perspective and humor to the view a new imprint might have of her position and of her werewolf.

Excerpt from Chapter 1:

An imprint is the person upon whom the werewolf fixes, biologically.  It is a mystical connection as well as a biological one, but we believe it is mostly for the purpose of procreation.

Yes, having children.  Scary as it may be to even consider letting these guys with their games and strange sense of humor reproduce... It is the underlying purpose of the imprint.

Summary: Feature

Imprinting.  It's a mystical bonding for a werewolf and his mate.  More than just identifying a soul-mate, the imprint is meant to promote a strengthening of the shapeshifting bloodlines for each imprinted male. 

It is, according to Sam and Emily Uley, a mating imperative.  The sanity of the male is tied to the proximity of his mate.  This is not always convenient...

But it can be interesting!  Just ask Embry Call and Bella Swan.

Excerpt from chapter two:

I moistened my lips – nervous, but knowing he would kind of need me to get the ball rolling, so to speak, because he would never want to rush me.  Especially not this weekend.  “Were they good dreams?”

Very.”

“Would you tell me about them?”

He almost choked.  “Isabella!”  A tremor passed through his body, but I knew it had nothing to do with that inner wolf and everything to do with the man that he was.  “No,” he murmured.  “But I can show you...”

Summary: Feature

When Edward left Bella (entirely for her own good!), he broke her, ripping an emotional and psychological hole in her that took time to heal.

In my story The Hardest Part, we read how Bella is paired with Embry Call, Jacob Black's best friend, and how she becomes his mate. His imprint. His other half.  But we don't hear how she felt about it all, really.

This intrigued enough of my readers that they asked me to bring out Bella's perspective of this story.  In my view, the imprint is the best thing for Bella in this AU, and in Becoming Whole, I hope to show why this is so. Why a relative stranger with an instinctive commitment to her could patch the holes Bella carried with her.

The Hardest Part by LJ Summers Rated: PG-13 starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 137]
Summary: Feature

Imprinting is a mystery. It brings together two people who might not have even considered one another in any way whatsoever.  My interpretation of this relationship holds that it is, overall, a mating imperative to assure the strong propagation of the "shape shifting" gene. 

When Embry Call imprints on Bella Swan, he finds that the hardest part of being a werewolf might be something he hadn't even considered.
