A relative newcomer to Twilight, I read the series in '09, after shying away from it for several years. It's just not normally my type of literature. To tell you the truth, it still isn't. Although I identified with clumsy new girl Bella at first, it was Edward who stayed with me once I'd finished reading the series. More to the point, he refused to leave. It's because of him that I'm writing creatively for the first time in years.

FOX FIRE was born before I knew about Midnight Sun. I almost abandoned it after reading the "First Sight" character development on Stephenie Meyer's website, but I'm glad now that I didn't. The more that Edward develops a voice of his own, the more I enjoy communing with him. At this point, I don't plan to read the rest of MS until I'm finished with my own story. I'm having too much fun. MsRason created the stunning banner. Thank you, Rason! It's also on her blog.

I can't write without listening to music. Sometimes music inspires the prose, sometimes a piece of music "just fits the words". There are currently three playlists for my main story: Fox Fire (encompassing the entire story arc), Lost Weekend (chapter 9) and Together Alone (chapters 19 & 20). They're all on Grooveshark if you're inclined to follow them.

Many, many thanks to the reader who nominated FOX FIRE for an ETERNITY AWARD. (The Meadow Award/Best Edward Bella Moment).

COUNTERPOINTS is an accompanying series of outtakes and alternate POVs from Fox Fire.

A CARTON OF MILK, a one-shot, was voted Readers' Choice Winner, "The Life and Times of Bree Tanner" challenge. This was my first writing challenge, and it was so encouraging to receive this validation. Award Banner

ATOMIK, another one-shot, was originally a chapter from "Fox Fire". It didn't work with the storyline, but I loved the dialogue so much that I couldn't bear to scrap it.

MIDWINTER is a series of vignettes and one-shots that allow me to indulge my obsession with Edward's dark years during the Depression. Some of them have been with me the entire time I've been writing Fox Fire. They will find their place here.    

BETA: I'm a beta for Project Team Beta. There are some amazingly hardworking individuals in this group, and through it I met my beta, Lezlee. My stories would be nowhere without her stalwart support and her wisdom. We've become great friends, as well as a great writing team. You can link to her profile through my favourites.

I also beta:
ChloeCougar's A Second Chance
Tinaababy's Soulmate
b.krumova's Death on Stephenson Street
twilightgirl224's Matters of the Heart


"I have spent most of the day putting in a comma and the rest of the day taking it out." ~ Oscar Wilde

Some days, writing really is like that. It's not always Evil Real Life that gets in my way; I'm also my own harshest critic. Please be patient if I am slow to update.

Besides writing EPOV fiction, I write non-fiction for newsletters, magazines, and online publications in my real life. I am inspired by prose and poetry from the 17th century to the present, and also by the rugged mountain scenery of western Canada where I live.
