Greetings to all! Thanks for setting up this template, the "tell us about yourself" portion of anything usually stops me in my tracks (my lack of profiles for facebook, myspace, and every other social site, save Twitter, can attest to this fact).
How did you pick your screen name?
-I've had this name a very long time and it's really the only one I will remember...I thought I could slip it in, as Stephenie has touched on mermaids as a possible story in the future.
How did you come to read Twilight and which book is your favorite?
-I was a bit late to the party...I was bumming around Australia in February of 2009. Low on cash with a wealth of time, I grabbed Twilight from my friend's library and headed to the Botanical Gardens in Sydney. With no expectations and just something to pass time on the train, I opened to the first page...then read it cover to cover that day. I finished both New Moon and Eclipse whilst there and saved Breaking Dawn for the flight back to LAX. Best. 15-hour-flight. Ever.
-Twilight is my favorite book overall; it lays the foundation and builds the infrastructure of the entire saga.
Who do you like best: Edward, Bella, or Jacob?
-I love all three characters in their own way. When I re-read the series, I find new traits & reasons that endear me to each. This last go around was Jacob's "sure, sure" and how Bella picked it up. Everytime it was said, it made me smile. I never caught on it before and brought Bella and Jacob a little closer for me.
Who is your favorite minor character?
-Alice is my AbFave. A best friend/sister who loves you unconditionally, plans the coolest events, always has your back and could literally rip your enemy to shreds. Done.
What are your hobbies?
-I am a bit of a Renee in this respect. I have picked up many a brush, pen & instrument, only to move to the next avenue of self expression, but have yet found my true calling in the hobby area. I love to read (clearly), play golf from time to time, cook and take care of the many animals my family has adopted.
Where are you from (general area like Montana, not exact town!)
How old are you? (In general, like teen, 20's, 30's, 40's etc)
Older than Bella, younger than Carlisle.
