Over and over I feel as if my characters know who they are, and what happens to them, and where they have been and where they will go, and what they are capable of doing, but they need me to write it down for them because their handwriting is so bad." —Anne Lammott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

Hi! Thanks for visiting my profile on This is the corner of fandom where I first started posting. However, I no longer post new one-shots and chapters here because I feel very strongly about the business practices of Omnific Publishing, which is owned by the owner of Twilighted and whose staff is made up of many senior staff from Twilighted. 

I have chosen at this time not to remove my stories from this site, as I realize others do enjoy reading here, and while I disagree with OP's operations, Twilighted was at its outset, a wonderful asset to the fandom and I feel it unfair to readers who preferred to read here, and who supported me here to take down my existing stories with all of their wonderful comments. 

While I still have review alerts enabled, I deliberately try to stay logged out of this site, which means I don't always reply. I appreciate your taking the time to review, and ask that you accept my thanks en masse. I am more accessible at my profile: or even better, my personal website at

Whether you read here or elsewhere, thank you very much for your interest in my Twilight fanfiction. Happy reading!
