I'm in that weird transition phase in my life... The 'I just graduated from college and have no idea what I'm going to do with a BA in Politics and Government' kind of stage. I suppose it doesn't help that now that I'm not in classes any longer I have much more time on my hands to think about the grad school applications I submitted to schools in London nearly a month ago... Being honest... My junior year of college that I spent in London was one of the happiest times of my life... Hence the extreme desire to move back... I've prepared my family with the whole 'I might never come back to the States if I end up moving there in September' speech.


That being said, I'm doing quite a lot of soul searching. By this I mean, taking my battered copy of The Catcher in the Rye and re-evaluating my life. Holden has that kind of a pull on me. Such a billiant, albiet insane, mind. I'm also pouring myself into books written by Hanif Kereshi after reading "With Your Tounge Down My Throat" for my last English class as an undergraduate. There is something I find so fascinating with male novelists... It's the grity, real dipiction of life that they seem to express so wonderfully... I find it is something women novelists lack... If you know of any, I welcome suggestions. I read too much for my own good. At least it's what I would consider a positive vice.


I like to write real stories... I don't like to shy away from topics that are difficult to write. I think that's something that sets me apart.


I'm currently working on a story that will draw from my background in politics... I have plans to release it in July and as of now it is tentatively titled "Rouge State." It deals with a politician and a journalist (I wonder who is who... haha) both struggling to come to terms with the blatant refusal of the USA to acknowledge an ethnic cleansing in a made up, completely fictional (though real events have been drawn upon by real nation states and conflicts) nation. It is controversial in the fact that it deals with (1) moral ambiguity (2) nations responsibilties as set forth by Geneva Convention summit on international human rights (3) Religious and ethnic accountablity.


I got into fanfiction as a way to exercise my brain... I was sick of research papers involving presidents and foreign policy and public opinion... And well... I'm a bit of a procrastinator and a huge insomniac. Writing passes time productively.


If you couldn't tell by my stories... Music is a huge influence. I live my life with music. If you have suggestions, I'm always open to hear them. I like to think my tastes are rather broad... I'm open to new things.

Stories by brighteyes87

When a mysterious package finds its way to workaholic junior editor Bella Swan's door, she opens it to find the crisp pages of a manuscript penned by the mysterious M. J. Hunter. Astounded to have been granted the opportunity to work for such a great, albeit anonymous, author, she loses herself in the pages of the writer's newest novel, Assassin's Gate.

What she didn't foresee however, what she never expected, was for the book to change her life. But then again, the fictional world wasn't supposed to come to life.

Long ago, when she was young, her grandmother had told her of a pen that held great powers. A story that, though she based her masters dissertation on, she believed to be nothing but folklore: random coincidences romanticized by her eccentric family. Now however, she can't be so sure that it's all just happenstance.

Can Bella save the man written in the pages before it's too late? Or is destiny fated to destroy him? And, if she were to reach him, what could come of her interference in a world that she doesn't belong in, that she was never written in to begin with?
