How did you pick your screen name?
Well, I really hate choosing screen names. I picked the first thing that came to mind that didn't make me cringe. At first I didn't even realize the name connection -- I only thought of "bella fiori" for what it means ("beautiful flowers") and didn't consider the "Bella" part.
How did you come to read Twilight and which book is your favorite?
I began my journey last October 2007. I was desperate for new reading material and didn't find anything I liked very much. Then I saw Twilight and thought I'd give the vampire story a try. I had no idea what I was opening up...I've been a voracious reader my entire life, but I had never before fallen in love with a character. I went around blushing for weeks.
How can I choose a favorite?? I love Twilight because it was the first. It's still the most mysterious and has many of my favorite parts. I don't have much love for New Moon -- though I fully appreciate its role in the series, it is grueling to read. I think Eclipse is a joy, but I love the character development in Breaking Dawn. That's the book that made me finally understand Jacob. I didn't even like him until the last book. And seeing other sides of Edward and Bella was just lovely. I'm completely undecided.
Who do you like best: Edward, Bella, or Jacob?
Oh, Edward. He's moody and I don't always agree with him, but he is fascinating. I didn't like Bella much until the last two books, and I didn't get Jacob at all until Breaking Dawn. Maybe he's still got a chance with me. I'm curious to find out.
Who is your favorite minor character?
Again, I don't know if I can choose. As much as I love Alice, I can't look away from Jasper. Characters with a significant dark side are more interesting to me. But I love so many characters that I can't honestly decide.
What are your hobbies?
Reading, parenting, hiking, camping, playing in the sand...
Where are you from (general area like Montana, not exact town!)
Southern Utah, in the gorgeous red rock desert.
How old are you? (In general, like teen, 20's, 30's, 40's etc)
In my 30s.
Anything else you would like to share.
I have two children. Saying that out loud is still astounding.
Reading is my escape from the dailiness of living.
One day I will play cello!!
