I just realized that sometimes people look little ol' me up and I have nothing written here - so here I am remedying that situation.
I am in my forth decade on this earth (Canada to be precise). I am the stereotypical mom whose pre-teen daughter introduced me to "Twilight" and I was hooked. This has been a wonderful journey that my daughter and I have been able to share together. I am an Edward fan and a fan of Robert Pattisons handsome face and geeky, fun, don't take the world too serious ways in interviews.
I found fanfic about two years ago and it is my escape and at times, my husband would say, my addiction (he always smiles when he says it--even after 18 years I still love him much-ly...lol).
I haven't written a story although I do love to review (I think its the least I can do when enjoying a story someone has put out there). I love when creative works make me feel something. This may sound odd, but the stories that I love the most and make me happy are the ones that have stirred my emotions. My happiness as a reader often comes from being inspired, moved, and "emotionally manipulated" by the writing of the author. I think that the power of words is awesome in the true sense of the term and when a writer has the gift to effectively wield that power to invoke the reader to feel pain, joy, sadness, anger, frustration and a whole spectrum of emotion within the bubble of their story (their created world), I think that the emotion itself that has been raised is a living testament to their gift. I think it's awesome!
I do fear however, that in the past there have been writers that may have misunderstood my words in reviews and taken them as criticism rather than a compliment to their story and the wonderful power of their words (ie: If a characters actions have angered me, or an event has made me sad or confused) . With the wonderful replies and discussions on forms and face book with various authors, I have learned that stating the happy place that I am coming from first, before letting my emotion pour out on a page is a good thing. I hope never to hurt the feelings of the wonderful people who put their time, talent, and imaginations out there for the whole world to see. I want to support them with my thoughts, questions, predictions and love.
So, for authors who may be reading this after I have left a review, I dont leave negative reviews. I dont see the point in them. I would never put any one down or purposely make anyone sad for anything written. Please then feel free to write me back, to say hello, and tell me what you are thinking. Like authors, I love getting mail.
