I am a middle aged artist who loves books, her pets, gardening, books, wildlife, Twilight, and more books. Indeed, I truly have a weakness for books and their number supercede the number of doggie squeak toys that I could trip over on a daily basis!
Always looking for good, well written stories, especially if they have a touch of romance and supernatural, I discovered Twilight about the time the first movie came out in theaters. Curious about all the excited fanfare and the extensive display of Twilight merchandise in the local bookstore, I bought a paperback copy and suddenly became fixated on Edward and Bella's love story. I read it over and over and quickly read through the entire Saga. I admit that after devouring New Moon, I jumped straight into Breaking Dawn. I had read reviews of Eclipse and I simply wanted to get back to the Edward/Bella love story. I try to forget that I read Eclipse. More on that another time.
After reading the entire Twilight Saga several times (except for Eclipse which I refer to as The Book Where Everyone Behaves Badly) plus Midnight Sun, I needed more stories about the gang in Forks. I found the stories at FanFiction and I am having a wonderful time. There are some fantastic writers here and I appreciate all their time and imagination in continuing to bring Ms. Meyer's characters to life.
Favorite Twilight Saga paragraph: "I'd never seen anything more beautiful--even as I ran, gasping and screaming, I could appreciate that. And the last seven months meant nothing. And his words in the forest meant nothing. And it did not matter if he did not want me. I would never want anything but him, no matter how long I lived." Bella in New Moon, page 451.
Favorite books: Miss Austen's Pride & Prejudice, Ms. Meyer's Twilight, Richelle Mead's Bloodlines series, Kim Harrison's Hollows series, Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child's Agent Pendergast series, Dave Duncan's A Man of His Word series, and Dean Koontz's Odd Thomas series.
Favorite couples: Darcy & Elizabeth, Edward & Bella, Jasper & Alice, Emmett & Rosalie, Carlisle & Esme, Sydney & Adrian, Rap & Inos, and Rachel & Trent.
Author that I am reading a lot of lately: Stephen King. I am really enjoying his Dark Tower stories.
Will I ever publish here on FF? I hope so! I have two Edward and Bella stories in the works, plus several other ideas percolating around in my head. It's slow going but, one day, I hope to have a finished story to share with other Twilight fans.
