Most Romantic Moments

If you haven't been able to figure this out yet, I am very much in love with the idea of love. With each story I write, I try to be romantic - to try and write about things that I always dreamed about happening to me. I look forward to writing more stories for all of you to read and hopefully enjoy. I love the encouragement and feedback that I am constantly getting as well as the opinions and curiosity that people have in regards to the characters I create.

As a writer, it is important to me that I write stories that a majority of people like to read. I understand that I cannot please everyone but it seems that every reader I get has at least one favorite story. Of every story I have written, of every scene and line of dialogue, which is your favorite? What the is the scene that made you smile or tear up or made you want to read it again and again?

For me, personally, one of my favorite scenes is from Some Kind of Wonderful when Casey Reed and Amelia Aldridge make love for the first time. That particular love scene is the one I am probably the most proud of writing for I tried something different in the way I wrote the scene and I loved how it turned out. What is yours? Leave me a comment and let me know.

Andrew and Carrie's Song

I love the holidays because my parents want to spend all of their time with the babies and me and Justin can finally take a few deep breaths. And I also get to write and write. I have always loved fairy tales and for Christmas, my mother bought me a book of fairy tales and she was quite pleased with herself for buying the book when I told her about my story A Fairy Tale. I am working on the sixth chapter of the story right now and I always listen to music when I write. While I am writing this chapter, New Found Glory's cover of Iris keeps playing in my head and though it is much faster and more update than the Goo Goo Dolls original song, I still think that the song works perfectly for Carrie and Andrew. What song do you think works for them? Let me know.

A Fairy Tale - Chapter Five

I have added the fifth chapter of A Fairy Tale on so please read and review it for me. I have the entire story planned out in my head and it will only be about ten chapters long. After that, I am going to start writing Stars and Boulevards. Since no one liked the setting of that story being in high school, I have decided to move it to college-age. Writing a story about pro-football seemed ridiculous to me so I will write it in college instead. As for Wasteland, it may sound far-fetched but last year, my entire town was quarantined for two days after a chemical spill so it can happen. However, I am not sure if I will write the story since it was met with hardly any support. Right now though, my attention is with A Fairy Tale so be sure to check it out for me. Thank you.

Some New Ideas

Let me know what you think of these ideas for these will be the stories to be worked on after I complete A Fairy Tale:

Stars and Boulevards: Every football player at Reagan High School knows better than to ever even look at Coach Thomas’ daughter, Rowan. But from the first time star fullback Chris Moss sees her, he is instantly interested in her. Of course, with Coach Thomas standing in his way, and Rowan refusing to date football players, Chris certainly has a challenge ahead of him in his pursuit of her.

Wasteland: Soap-opera actress, Nelly Werner, is driving up from Chicago to visit her ailing mother in her hometown of Raven, Wisconsin. But while there, a truck crashes, spilling chemicals all over the road and quarantining the town until the air is cleared and the chemicals are not deemed dangerous, leaving Nelly in a town she hasn’t been back to since she left at eighteen. There, she will reconnect with her mother again and some old friends while meeting the town’s new sheriff, Simon Alvarez.

Have a safe and happy holiday everyone!

Listen To This

Now that In a Red Dress and Alone is complete, I can focus on finishing Andrew and Carrie's story in A Fairy Tale but first, I am working on a one-shot about Casey Reed and Amelia Aldridge. It is going to be called Good Day and below, you can listen to the song that the story is based on. Listen to it and let me know what you think of it. P.S. Do you like that I started posting music on the blog?

In a Red Dress and Alone - Final Chapter

I just posted the fourth chapter of In a Red Dress and Alone and with this update, Cami and Reed finally get their mushy ending. Josh and Charlotte's story also ends as well - both hopeful with endless possibilities. Read and review for me and let me know what you all think. Thank you.

Thinking Out Loud

Good morning everyone. Just to let everyone know, I will be going out of town tomorrow for the holidays and will be returning the 27th so there will be no updates in that time. I am going to work on the last chapter of In a Red Dress and Alone today and hopefully, that will be posted sometime tonight. I'm not sure if this story is being enjoyed by all but I am thankful to everyone who has read and reviewed it for me. It means a lot to me. After this story is complete, I will be resuming with A Fairy Tale and I have been doing some thinking and inspiration for continuing The Prettiest Thing has just not been with me. I have at least four ideas for stories running around in my head and unfortunately, The Prettiest Thing plotline is not one of them. I will let you all know of the ideas later when I have them more fleshed out and I will let you all decide which story you want to read first.

I am also in the middle of working on a one-shot about Casey and Amelia Reed. I really want to write something for this couple so I am in the middle of working on it. Now, I know a lot of people want a Wallace and Hannah story but honestly... well, their story will be mentioned in Casey and Amelia's story but just so everyone knows, Hannah and Wallace are not going to be a couple. But that is all going to be explained in the story.

In a Red Dress and Alone Update

I updated chapter three of In a Red Dress and Alone on so please read and review it for me. Let me know what you think. Thank you to everyone who has read and reviewed it for me so far. I really appreciate it. I think that it will have one more chapter to go and I promise a happy ending. Cami and Reed definitely deserve one.

Listen To This

I have been listening to The Ocean by The Bravery on repeat recently it seems. It's such a beautiful hauntingly sad song and I wanted to post the song so anyone who wants to can listen to it. I've been wanting to write a one-shot about one of my couples with this song in the background but I can't decide what couple it should be. Please listen to the song and then let me know which couple it should be. Remember that it can be any ANY couple you want it to be. Leave a comment for me. Thank you.

Fan Pictures

Bulma-Veggie, my French fan as she likes to always remind me :), sent me these pictures of Reed and Cami, saying that this is how they envisioned what the couple would look like at the end of chapter two of In a Red Dress and Alone. I think they're beautiful so thank you for sending them to me. What do you all think of them? Let it be known in the comments section.

Casey and Amelia

Thank you to everyone for their suggestions and kind words about the blog. I will be taking everything into consideration when I actually have time to sit down and give this blog a so-called makeover. Below are pictures, as requested, of Casey Reed and Amelia Aldridge. I'm actually really glad that I found these two actors to "portray" the characters. I think they look as close to my visions as possible and I hope everyone likes them as well.

Please Respond

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is having a good Monday. I've been doing some thinking and I would like everyone to leave their opinion in the comment section so I get a feel for what the general thoughts are.

Since a new year is approaching, I was thinking of giving this blog a little make-over but what does everyone want to see? More pictures? Less pictures? A different layout? Should I start labeling posts more so it is easier to find a specific post? What do you want to get from this blog? Should I stop uploading posts and end the blog or is everyone still enjoying this creation? Should I post more videos of songs I use in stories or think of in regards to the characters? Let me know. The comments section is now open to be used as feedback. Please respond and let me know what you want from myself and my blog. Thank you!

More Random Pictures

As asked, here are pictures of Lawson Chambers, Nikki Hawkins, and Chase Merra from the Wonderwall series as well as a picture of Violet Littleton from Better Together. I really like all of these pictures though the Lawson picture would have been absolutely perfect if he had the tattoos on his arms. What does everyone else think of them?





Random Couple Pictures

Reading through some of the e-mails I received, people want to see more pictures of Brady and Ali from Something Pretty, Abe and Cecilia from Collide, Violet from Better Together, Nikki, Lawson and Chase from the Wonderwall stories, and another picture of both Casey and Amelia from Some Kind of Wonderful. I have pictures of all of those characters and will be posting them in several entries so not to bog down one with all of the photos. Remember that you can request anything you like and I will try my best to get it. Thank you.

In a Red Dress and Alone Update

I updated the second chapter of In a Red Dress and Alone on and even though I said that it is going to be three chapters, I think it might end up either four or five. Next chapter is going to start with some flashbacks of Reed and Cami during happier times since we never really get a lot of those between the couple. Below are pictures of the main characters of the story. Please read the chapter and review for me. Let me know what you think of this short story so far. Thanks.








Odds and Ends

There will be no more polls posted. I did those just for fun and to just get a feel for what readers think of the characters. Some did not care for them while others loved them. To everyone though, no more polls. Also, in regards to the Wonderwall offspring, I still have not decided. Once again, some seem eager while others don't want it all. I suppose all I can say is thank you for everyone's input and the decision is entirely my own. I am also NOT continuing with the Wonderwall rewrite. It wasn't too warmly accepted it seemed and even though I do not like it, a lot of people remain loyal to the first original one. I may write a story about Casey, Amelia, Wallace and Hannah and I might not. I have other stories to see to first. I was just throwing the idea out there for feedback.

Below are pictures of Will Kelly and Lucy Banks from Everything Will Be Alright. I posted these back in April but someone wanted to see the again. If anyone else has photo requests, either leave a comment or email me at Thank you.



Fan Secondary Couple Favorite

In the newest poll, Jared Townsend and Emily Thorn from both Blood and Honey and Circle Park won by a landslide as the favorite secondary couple from my stories. Thank you for voting. I'm glad so many of you showed an interest in the polls I made on a sudden whim.



Thanks to Alessandra for the fanart!

The Wonderwall Offspring

These pictures were requested some time ago but I was nervous to post them because I wasn't sure if I would be able to find pictures that would seem believable as the children of the popular Wonderwall characters. I wanted to find pictures of actors/models that resembled their parents and especially for Wallace and Amelia, I wanted pictures that looked like brother and sister. Although I don't really watch television, I knew that teen shows would have the people I needed. After searching for hours, I think I have finally found them. Below are pictures of Wallace and Amelia Aldridge - the twins - Casey Reed and Hannah Smith: Justin and Poppy's children, Brady and Ali's son and Holden and Sarah's daughter. These four may be in another story but I'm not sure. Is that something you would want to read?





The Twins

And the Winners So Far Are...

Results from my polls so far are as followed: the favorite leading man is Jamie Cross from Better Together though he and Ben Norfolk keep going back and forth. And the favorite leading lady at the moment is Olivia Grange from More than Anyone though Lucy Banks from Everything Will Be Alright, Camie Hall from Beyond the Grey Sky and Violet Littleton from Better Together all held the top spot at one point or another. Voting is still going on for Favorite Secondary Couple so be sure to cast your opinion.

Jamie Cross

Olivia Grange

Secondary Couples

Since everyone seems to be enjoying the polls I have created, and since I love to see what everyone prefers in my stories, I have made another one. Which secondary couple in my stories is your favorite? Again, you can vote as many times as you want. I think it makes for some interesting competition when people try to get their choice to win. Vote and have fun!

The Prize - The End

I just posted Chapter 15, the last chapter, of The Prize on and though I know no one was looking forward to this story ending, the story had to come to a close sometime. There is a lot of brotherly interaction in this chapter between Ryan and Tyson and Ryan's way of thinking may be hard to follow but it is very much like his personality so keep that in mind. Also, the ending may not feel like an ending at all but like most of my stories, I don't like putting a stamp of finality onto my couples. Tyson and Amy are just beginning, not ending. I like the ending. I think it stays true to Tyson's character perfectly and Amy has definitely grown and matured. I just hope everyone sees all of these things as they read it. I'm quite proud of this chapter - especially the Ryan and Tyson talk in the beginning. So please read, review and most of all, enjoy.

Stories In Progress

I have been working on chapter 15, the last chapter, of The Prize in any spare moment I can find for myself and it is almost complete. I hope to have it posted either tonight or sometime tomorrow. I'm quite proud of it so far. And with this story coming to a close, that leaves time for me to work on the others I have.

A Fairy Tale so far has four chapters and I was planning on making it have perhaps ten or eleven chapters. In a Red Dress and Alone is only going to have three chapters - a very short story - so I am going to work on that one first. After Reed and Cami's story is completed, then I will show all of my attention on Carrie and Andrew in their story. And I still get questions about The Prettiest Thing and I have been thinking about it. I am going to take the story down and start fresh after A Fairy Tale and In a Red Dress and Alone are commpleted. I am moving Brett, Ella and Trevor from high school and moving them into an adult setting and changing the plot slightly though it will still be about the best friend and the little sister falling for one another cliche.

Alright. So first is In a Red Dress and Alone and then A Fairy Tale and then I will begin work on The Prettiest Thing. I am letting everyone know this because there are people that want me to work on five stories at the same time and I cannot do that so this is my plan and I hope it is a plan everyone is satisfied with. There might be some random one-shots added in at times but I have none planned at the moment. Thank you to everyone who sticks with me and who supports my writing. You guys are the ones that keep me going and I hope this plan of mine pleases at least some of you.

Leading Ladies

I'm glad everyone is having fun with the Leading Men poll. As promised, here is the poll to see who the favorite female character from my stories is. I also fixed it so a person can vote as many times as they want. So have fun and vote for your favorite girl!

Wednesday, December 12, 2007

Leading Men

I have created this poll so everyone have fun and vote for whoever you want as many times as you want. Either tomorrow or Friday, I will have one created for the fan favorite leading woman. Have fun!


Thank you a thousand times to Amanda who found this picture and sent it to me, saying that it reminded her of Tyson at the end of chapter 14 in The Prize. This picture is perfect in my opinion. What do you think?

The Prize - Chapter 14

I just updated Chapter 14 of The Prize over on so check it out for me. Chapter 15 will be posted hopefully this weekend, and with it, the story will end. Just one more chapter to go. I hope everyone enjoys this chapter. I loved it but I'm not sure if anyone else would. The first half of it is Amy thinking to herself and as we all know, Amy thinking to herself can be rather on the rambling side and completely random so prepare yourself for that. Thank you in advance for reading and reviewing for me.

Reed and Cami's Story

Although I am really hesitant to post anything, I posted the first chapter of the short three-chapter story In a Red Dress and Alone, which is a continuation of Reed Simms and Cami Hall's story. It is posted on so check it out if you are curious. It has sex in the first chapter and though it is posted on an adult site, I know that not everyone likes reading the sex so this is a warning. I am not sure if I should be posting anything but I wanted to post it since I know people were wondering what happened to this story since I mentioned it months before. Also, I have more fanart to post but I probably won't post all of it until tomorrow. Thanks ahead of time for reading!

Saturday, December 8, 2007


So I was on the internet yesterday and I began to find all of these pictures that reminded me of some of my couples and I wanted to post them for everyone. It's funny because every time I see a picture of a blonde girl on the beach, I immediately think of Lindsey from Blood and Honey and I think the picture I found is absolutely the most perfect picture for that couple. Let me know what you think of the other pictures I found.

Matt & Lindsey

Blackout - Part II

I decided to post another chapter to the original one-shot Blackout on I hope you read it and enjoy it. Also, today, during the kids' naps, I was able to write the last few paragraphs of The Prize and complete my outline. I changed a few things so I needed to rework the original idea. There are going to be two chapters left and though the last chapter didn't get as much attention as I thought it would considering how many people ask me to update, I am going to start working on chapter 14 and hopefully have it up within the next few days. In the meantime, check out the second chapter, and possibly the last one, of Blackout. Thank you!
