Someone told me I should write something about myself so here it goes...
I'm a mom of four who recently fell in love with fandom. I live in Southern California and love the beach. I have a close group of girlfriends who are soul affirming and make me giggle on a routine basis and a wonderful husband who loves me to a fault. All in all - a lucky girl.
I read all the books in the Twilight Saga after my middle school daughter wanted to read them (November of 2009) and I thought I better read them first. I read them all in 5 days, my husband thought I lost my mind! I run a sucessful business, working on my MBA, manage my kids social and sports schedules, but found that fandom really feeds my soul. After reading Midnight Sun' on Stephanie Meyer's website, I both wanted and needed more and found Wide Awake through a news article. I was hooked and inspired.
I came to this site thinking I would try my hand at writing, which has always been a love of mine, BUT I am HUMBLED by caliber of the authors here. At this point I am just soaking up everything I have time to get my hands on.
I FINALLY WROTE MY FIRST STORY!! I decided to write a fic for a contest so I went to TwilightAwards and closed my eyes as the contests were scrolling and picked one. Imagine my surprise when I landed on TwiSlash Unveiled! Never one to back down from a challege waited until 2 days before the deadline and started writing. There was a 10K word cap and a required lemon. When I got to 14K without a lemon :blushes: I did a super edit. I ended up taking RunnerUp, it was such an honor, there were some FABULOUS entries.

I have the unique ability to make 2 words 10, so I think I better stop while I'm ahead!
