Newbie from California

Postby skatepixie » Tue Apr 19, 2011 7:17 am

How did you pick your screen name?
It's been my screenname elsewhere, before. Pixie is a nickname from childhood, and I used to be a competitive figure skater.

How did you come to read Twilight and which book is your favorite?
I saw it in the bookstore and thought it looked good, so I bought it. I read it and went back to purchase New Moon and Eclipse the next day, powering through both. Picking a favorite is soooo hard. Twilight started the magic for me. While part of me is inclined to dislike New Moon due to lack of Edward, I love Italy so that part of the book was wonderful for me. Eclipse revealed a lot about the characters and plot, plus Victoria got her just desserts. And Breaking Dawn brought us the happy ending.

Who do you like best: Edward, Bella, or Jacob?
Stop with the hard questions. :P While I'm more of a Jacob fan post-BD, I have to choose Edward. He's the ideal man in most ways, and is truly a gentleman.

Who is your favorite minor character?
Alice or Carlisle, depending on which day you ask me. I've also always liked Rosalie -- I could tell there was more to her story, even in the early books. I loved it when she rose to the occasion in BD.

What are your hobbies?
I'm editing a novel I wrote a while back (skating themed). I also like watching skating and gymnastics, as well as cooking, shopping, and hanging out with my friends.

Where are you from (general area like Montana, not exact town!)
Southern California.

How old are you? (In general, like teen, 20's, 30's, 40's etc)
20s

Anything else you would like to share.
My husband and I are a few weeks away from our first anniversary. We are currently looking for a house (have been for six months) and we plan on adopting from Russia in the future.

Yes, many a time. :) I'm the municipal liaison for my local area. NaNo is what got me to a point of being able to write an entire first draft -- now it's a matter of getting a PUBLISHABLE draft. Haha.
