Monday Meet & Greet with PJJ0930


I first encountered PJJ0930 back when I read her first story, Time Continues On last May. Pam is also the author of Finding Hope, as well as a very interesting story called No Looking Back, which is usually the kind of Jasper/Bella story I enjoy because our protagonists are given time to grow and heal after the New Moon debacle of Edward's leaving. What we're given is an incredibly matured Bella and a more independent Jasper, who has somewhat - although not entirely - moved away from the Cullen clan. I have really enjoyed this story, and if you haven't had a chance to read it, I suggest you do so as soon as possible.

But what I think I am the most excited about is Pam's first chapter to me of an Alistair/Bella multi-chap for which she asked me to be the beta. At the time, I don't believe there were any Alistair/Bella romantic fanfics out there. Now we have lifelesslyndsey's Hit and Run, so the addition of Pam's, when ready, will be spectacular. Pam has crafted a non-curmudgeonly old character in Alistair - instead he is young and sexy! Any non-canon lover will grab hold of this story with both hands and delve in once Pam begins to post. The preface alone is intriguing, and all I can say is that Pam is, as far as I know, busy writing the majority of it as I type this.

Alistair and Bella, Lambchops... Alistair and Bella! I give Pam kudos just for GOING there.


Tell us about yourself. Married? Single? Kids, age, ..whatever you'd like to share.

OK… I’m 35 with two kids, married… Exciting huh. I am currently un-employed, a victim of company down-sizing… Sad huh?

Tell us about Twilight. How did you first get into the Saga, when was the first time you read it, and which book is your favorite?

Funny story actually, my brother recommended Twilight to me, his teenage daughter had read it and enjoyed it. So I bought it, then went on a hunt for the rest of the series… I read all four of them at least twice in the first week. Although I have to say I hated Breaking Dawn... My favorite is New Moon, because it introduces lots of new characters to us… Not a fan of Jacob, but I have read parts of that particular book so many times I can practically recite some it… Pitiful, really.

What got you to start reading Twilight Fanfiction? Do you remember the first fic you read?

Actually found out about FF from a message board on Amazon. I read When Darkness Turns to Light, followed by Colliding Meteors and that was the beginning of my non-canon days. I read some canon still, but typically only if they are AH.

Which are your favorite stories?

I have so many, but I love IDoE's stories. My favorite list is nearing 300 and really is out of control.

Who are your favorite characters, from who you like the most to er...who you would like to kill right off the bat?

Favorite is Jasper, followed closely by Bella. I think both characters have so much room for development.

Least Fav – Geez, Jacob or Edward… They are equally close to last in my book.

Which fics are you reading right now, and which ones have your complete attention whenever they pop with an update?

Saving Bella has me enraptured… Also, The Orbiting Meteor and Breathless Hunger.. Hint, Hint update please… And of course The Last Mile, no list would be complete without catpire included.

What made you finally decide to start writing your own?

I was bored one day and started my first FF .. Looking back at it, I am not pleased with the story, but it was a learning experience.

What's the atmosphere like when you're writing? Music.. screaming and ripping each other apart, or husband bitching in the background? Do you drink and/or smoke?

Lots of noise, kids, dogs, phones, tvs. I rarely have any peace so my writing as of late has been put on the back burner.

What else do you like to read besides Twilight?

I love to read anything that holds my attention. I have a huge collection of books that vary from mystery to romance to sci-fi to supernatural. Reading is my one outlet from RL.

What else do you like to do?

I have no life outside of my kids really but I do enjoy a good computer game. Currently I am playing one that has almost all of my attention – My family is convinced I am OCD, so I will probably complete it before I start writing again.

Tell us a secret.

I am currently working on a new story … With the wonderful Tina as my Beta … No one else has one for this pairing and the main character is completely undeveloped, I am looking forward to creating a new character that hopefully will entice many readers. I don’t really have any other secrets.


  1. I want to meet this woman. I want to meet the one other person who understands the Epicness and Win that Alistair could be. Srsly. Because until some more of you fandom darlins stop sitting on your ball sacks and write some Alistair, it's she and I. We shall rule.

  2. We need to rally together and bring forth the good word of Alistair together. I WANT more Alistair. Seriously, even if people take my fic and wordrape into their own, I want more. So, you can see that I am seriously anticipating her story. Because...I mean. There is AlistairxLeah out there. I'm not asking for much when I start thinking about Bella and Alistair and singing 'Lets Get It On....'
