Been getting some nice press lately *blushes modestly*:


*fan girl squee* Gravity Never Sleeps was rec'd on the Perv Pack's Smut Shack, May 24, as well as a very nice mention of Working Man - thank you, ladies! (A rather, um, loose application of the word... ;P )


ssherrill115, host of Southern Fan Fiction Review, interviewed me on May 1 as a follow-up to the post of my one shot Gravity Never Sleeps which was originally written for SFFR. I hope you'll check it out & get better acquainted...


Wordslinger posted a great rec of Moonshadow, as well as several other fine JxB fics, on Twi Fic Pimps blog (a very funny & informative site, btw): link

ArtBeatsandLife posted a lovely rec of Working Man on the Phase Fics blog and little furry cannibals wrote an absolutely lyrical rec of Moonshadow, also on Phase Fics.  Check out the reviews--and the whole site, for that matter: link

I have chocolate brown eyes and mahogany-colored hair, my skin is very fair and I blush easily. I have been 17 for a while… I’m a native of Portland OR and spent my childhood along Puget Sound. I’ve lived various places, but reading and writing so much Twi fic made me homesick, so now I’m back in the Pacific Northwest!

Professionally, I’m a chef. Really. I haven’t written anything other than menu descriptions since college – about the same time as the Battle of Hastings.

I got struck by Twilight November 13 2008, found out about fan fiction at the end of December, posted my first fic in February ’09. Anyone who knows me or has read my stuff knows what team I’m on – but I’ll read just about anything except RPF’s and Nessie fics. Of course, I used to say the same about AH, so you never know…

Librarian Bella needs a housemate to share expenses, wildlife researcher Jacob needs a place to stay. Sounds like an ideal arrangement, but there’s just one thing …

“…I certainly didn’t mind the sight of a nicely put together man. I was normal. It was just that the house was small, Jacob was large, and his broad, bare chest seemed to be everywhere. At first, I tried to pretend the whole situation wasn’t happening …”

My entry to a TATS contest hosted by Light4Dawn, with the prompt:

“Does my being half naked bother you?” 

Winner ~ Judge’s Pick Award.

"It will be as if I never existed..."

A novelette, inspired by reviewer requests. Moonshadow followed the ‘natural path’ Jacob referred to in Eclipse; that is, what would have happened in Bella’s life without the return of Edward and the Cullen family.

Edward’s story did not end just because he left Forks, for good as far as Bella knew…Of course, not all was as it seemed.

A follow up to my multi-chapter fic Moonshadow: nearly three years have passed since the events of Chapter 19. Easy as Breathing.  Jacob and Bella have grown – and grown up – as has their relationship. The time has come to make certain decisions… but you know what they say about the best laid plans…

Romantic, lemony fluff      rated NC-17 because…that’s the way I like to write!

La Push is a town with many secrets.  Some are more closely guarded than others…and for good reason. The story of a girl wolf's heartbreak.




“People thought of me as a sour, hateful bitch who couldn’t get over losing a man – at least they could think I was a brave hateful bitch. They didn’t need to know more than that. No one could help me with such a loss, a loss that took the very heart out of me.”


Insight on the secondary love triangle of the Saga… Parallel story to Moonshadow but it stands alone completely.

Hot Dish by diamondheart Rated: NC-17 starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 37]


Chef Bella Swan has spent her life pursuing her dream and passion - owning her own restaurant. Which has left her love life in the soup. What love life?

 Enter suave, sexy, unapproachable headwaiter Edward Masen...


"...Previously, the combination of ambition and exhaustion had put my libido into a sort of hibernation. No more. Not only did Edward's efforts at the Swan's Nest give me more time to myself than I'd had in years, there was the E-Factor, the Edward-factor, itself.

 I was quickly finding that all work and no play makes Bella a dull, frustrated, HORNY girl!"

 A lemony frolic! Rated for vulgar language, lewd behavior and shockingly graphic descriptions of food.

What if Edward kept his promise and Bella never heard from the Cullens again?  Jacob was more than willing to console her, but would she have the sense to let him?

"You know what your problem is, Bells? You're in love - with the wrong thing. You think you're hung up on a guy who left you, but you're not. You're hung up on the idea of yourself as the heartbroken heroine."

Alternate ending to New Moon...just a nice love story, with monsters. Rated for certain chapters, at a sultry 108 degrees!
