Am British, used to work full time for a legal firm and am now divorced from both ex-husband and job. Yay, freedom!
I had a BIG birthday a couple of years ago and fully intend to grow older disgracefully. Am a rock chick, but also a huge romantic. Sadly my OH was never romantic at all, not one jot - enough said. Pah! However, my new partner is HUGELY romantic and we love each other to bits, so am living the dream now lol.
Long-time writer of short stories and poems for myself, but had not put anything out there in the wider public domain until 18 months ago.
NOTE: My stories on here first appeared on Fanfiction.net but I have migrated them here because of the adult content. Loving Edward is now also being loaded upon Twilighted.net (under the name of Sammicat15 - I did try & get Cullenfest, but don't ask!!), although it will take a little while longer to bring it up to date!
Am totally into the world of Twilight and inevitably all things Rob & Peter. I won't embarrass myself by admitting how many times I've actually seen Twilight but it numbers well over 100 times. New Moon is getting on for 50 times as I've had it on download for a while. Roll on Eclipse! I stopped reading the books after the 13th consecutive rotation of them and got into writing about them to fill that need and it has been a total blast and fulfilling. My future challenge will be creating a new vampire world to inhabit, maye even a cross-over world with the Cullens.
Have always been intrigued by vampires and their lore and am loving all the films and TV series devoted to them. Also love anything supernatural like ghosts, people with psychic or super powers.
I have rheumatoid arthritis & fibromyalgia, so writing at a keyboard is probably the worst hobby I could have lol. If I could have a power, it would be telekinesis. With the RA, plus fibromyalgia, am in pain pretty much every day, so the ability to move items towards me, rather me have to go to them, would be totally wild!
Am a people-watcher and observer of the human condition. My stories tend to focus on love/loss, the intense emotions of grief/angst/need. I will always champion the underdog fighting for justice or triumphing through adversity. I try to balance dark and light - after all you can't have one without the other!
However, underneath everything, I believe that love conquers all. If you find love, cherish it, hold it, never take it for granted, because you have something wonderful in your hands.
Am a musical animal like Edward but no longer play an instrument. Can't get my fingers around the fretboards of the guitars upstairs! I listen to rock, blues, contemporary and classical music constantly - have eclectic tastes and enjoy gigs when I can get to them. Freedom is having a CD on in the car and heading out on the highway - preferably not on the crowded roads of the UK though! Have visited the US a fair bit, but what's with the 55mph limits??
Am totally into felines and have several prowling around at home. Also volunteer for a local cat rescue organisation, writing their newsletters and helping out with fundraising when I'm able to. (I shall be having a stern word with Edward about his dietary preferences when I see him!)
Hope you like my stuff. Am a huge believer in reviewing - if somebody puts sweat into writing something, I think it's only polite to spare a moment or two to give feedback. So please, pretty please, review review review!
