Bio:

I'm compass fiftyfour on Facebook. Come and say hi but don't expect me to play games EVER - it's just not my thing.


I'm a wife and mother to two beautiful boys who could not be more different. They are growing up now and are both very challenging. I'm still married and still working hard.


I loved Twilight (the addiction was intense and very surprising) and discovered the fandom a few years ago when I clicked on a link on a Twilight site and found a list of stories. After reading 'Stranger Than Fiction' and 'Unexpected Circumstances', I was completely hooked. Since then I've devoured some really great stories, let the housework go and lost myself in the fiction world. Much better than my real life.


To all of the writers who upload what comes out of your wonderful imaginations, a big thank you. You are inspiring.


I found my beta when I met Beach via reviews in September 2012, and now I could not get by without her. Thanks for everything, girl.


Vampyregirl86 came on board to help in June 2013 and I appreciate the intensity she brings to the study of every word.


The Girl From The Imperial Theatre (mostly pulled - currently being re-written)


The first story was a huge learning curve and I uploaded most of it in one go, not having a clue what I was doing. I'm determined to make it into the story I wanted it to be and 2014 should see that happen.


Here's a link to the building I based the White House on. I think I found it in some link to a Mukilteo real estate. Weird because it is in the Czech Republic, but I could see it would be perfect on the side of a hill looking over Puget Sound. The house became very central to the story so I thought you might like to see what it looked like.

Also where the wedding took place at The Loft, upstairs at Russell's Restaurant.

the website is very memory hungry - it's not your computer)


The Party - three shot written for Heather Maven's birthday.


The IT Guy - another birthday present for CullensTwi Mistress - may add to this in 2014.

Summary:

Montana, 1000 feet above the Missouri River, the last photo shoot before my vacation. The Cullen family, expanding the brand of their high-end whiskey, hired me to photograph their harvest. They chose an unknown male model to add sex to the campaign, and I knew working with an amateur would be a challenge. I never knew their seductive country boy would make me beg for more.
