The answer is yes. Barely.   It’s been a very rough year, but I’ve learned a bit from it. No matter what else I’m dealing with (there’s been so much both personally and professionally) I need to write. And it’s high time I got back to it.   The Heir and the Spare will update before […]





I think we’ve established Bella’s very responsible. The thing is, stuff like this happens. To responsible people. To smart people. And it happens all the time. Show me a person who’s never made a heat-of-the-moment mistake, and I’ll show you someone who’s either lying or hasn’t really lived. Having problems believing Bella could get caught […]





I don’t usually do this, but then again, it doesn’t usually take me three years to write a story. But Fall to Ruin One Day is very intricate, with nuanced details that inevitably get lost in the time between updates. From Chapter Three, a scene with Izzy and Alice: “Wait, what?” It’s rude of me […]





So many readers are appalled by Carlisle’s comment in the last chapter. In the context of wine tasting, it isn’t the blatant affront it seems to be. Most wine aficionados spit when tasting to avoid getting drunk, therefore retaining his or her palate longer. That Izzy swallows is somewhat unusual, and in that context, bears […]





I know. It’s coming in the next update. I felt (once the chapter was completed) that including the next two scenes distracted from the rest of Chapter 36, all of which is important to what’s about to go down. You won’t have to wait long for the next update. It’s going up on December 20th. […]





About the New Chapter…

I began writing Chapter Thirty-One of Fall to Ruin One Day on November 7, 2010. Though details changed during this time, but the main events remained the same. It’s loosely based on something I lived. The night of my twenty-fifth birthday, a stupid fight with my longterm boyfriend escalated in such a way that I […]





What’s missing?

With the exception of pieces you know are coming (the Guide to Losing a Player wedding night comes to mind) what moments do you wish I’d written that I haven’t? Be honest, and feel free to answer as much as you’d like. (There’s a point to this; I promise.)





Just clearing up some confusion regarding Fall to Ruin One Day. Yes, Edward knew he had a half-brother. He mentions it for the first time in Chapter Eight and again in Chapter Twenty. Alice does not know—she isn’t even aware of her father’s infidelities. Edward also is aware Izzy’s relationship with Carlisle was once sexual, […]





Where’s My Player Sex?

It’s coming (ha!); I promise. I offered to write it long after the deadline for submissions for inclusion in the fandom4saa compilation passed. Meanwhile, my inability to bend my thumb has slowed down my typing considerably. Fear not. It will be finished shortly, and posted in the usual places.





Broken hand is broken.

It started when I finished Some Little Girls, and Josh ran out for champagne. I was tipsy, and a song I did in a dance recital as a kid came on my iPod. “I remember the steps. Not only that, I can still do them!” So I did. “See, honey? Twenty years later, I’m none […]
