Jamie Knight – Editor In Chief

I’m the Editor in Chief/creator of TwiFandomNews.com, I make chemicals for a living and I write both fanfic and original fic. I have been in the realm of fanfic itself for almost 20 years, so when I read Twilight it was a no brainer as to what to do next. I co-write Learning to Kneel, a dark and twisted Jasper/Bella story, with a much lighter JxB fic planned after that one is complete. I have three dogs, three cats and far too many hobbies to count. I’m in process of getting my first manuscript (of a series of 8) ready to self publish. I battle with ADHD, so sometimes I can be all over the map. Don’t be surprised if I forget something or am late with something, just know that it is not intentional. My proverbial door is always open for chats, questions, concerns, etc so don’t hesitate to drop me a line or contact me on social media.

 

Christina Campisi – Contest Editor

I’m a single mother of 3 amazing children: 12-year-old twin boys and a 4-year-old daughter. Oh, and my fur-baby, Tink!I fell in love with Twilight back in 2008 and I found fanfiction in 2009, when I stumbled across the lovely story of Boycotts and Barflies by vjgm. I have been hooked ever since.

I have a seriously unhealthy obsession with Robert Pattinson, but I just like to think of it as dedicated.

I am also a travel agent, a student (soon to be teacher), a baseball mom, and the contest editor with Twifandom News.

 

Alyscia Northrup – Reporter Alpha

I am a 27-year-old mother of two boys, photographer, and twilight fanfiction writer. And when I am not writing or taking pictures and I reading. I got into fanfiction in 2009 till about 2011. I took a break because life happened then about 2015 I came back to reading and in 2016 I took back up writing. I am super excited to be a reporter here with Twifandom News.

 

Donna Wolosin – Recs Editor

I am a professor living on the west coast. I grew up on a farm in the Midwest and lived in several places before finally settling down in southern California. I came late to the Twilight party; October 2011. I found out about fan fiction when I read the first book in the FSOG series in May 2012. (I never got around to reading the other 2) I read MoTU instead. When I heard that Fifty was original fan fiction, I thought “What is Fan Fiction?” I had no idea about the different wards or other iterations of Twilight. For the past 5.5 years, I have enjoyed the many wards and bellas that come to life in wonderful stories. I have also made some great friends in the fandom who share my love for Twilight fan fiction. I am still in the closet in reading FFN and only my family and closest friends know.

I beta for several authors in the fandom and have enjoyed getting to know others. I greatly appreciate these women (and men?) who share their wonderful story writing and take us on adventures with Edward, Bella and the gang.

I have been married for 32 years to my very own Docward and have 2 grown sons. I rescued Vizslas for 15 years and lost my own 3 years ago. I like to take walks with my friends, babysit their 4-leggers to get my doggy fix and enjoy a challenging crossword puzzle. I have traveled extensively but am a bit of a homebody now. But, you can’t beat the lovely weather of southern California.

I have written over 30 journal articles and a textbook chapter, but I wish I could write fan fiction! I am in awe of the wonderful writers who share their stories with us.

 

Kim – Fandom Phonebook Editor

Hi, I’m Kim. I’ve been a twihard since 08, I think, been in the fandom since 2010? I’m married and have 3 boys 19, 16, and 12. Yes I have gray hair that color. ?

I run the Who’s Who in the Twilight Fandom group, a central location where I’ve complied and update the Who’s Who lists. I’m a pre-reader and beta too, but I mostly beta for contests or fundraisers with a story thrown in here and there. I’ve also try to participate in contests. I try to stay as active as I can in the fandom, because it’s my escape from RL and I’ve met so many wonderful woman and a few men and developed some amazing friendships. I can’t imagine my life right now without the fandom or twilight. Lastly, I probably have an unhealthy obsession for Robert Pattinson, but really, I adore the man and enjoy following his career and watching him grow as an actor.

Daphne René – Reporter Delta

Waves! I’m Daphne René, or the similar DaphneRene on FFN. I’ve been a fan of the Twilight books and movies since the beginning. Have been reading and writing TwiFic for years, and I love the Fandom Family<3. I’m so proud to be part of TwiFandomNews.com!

I’m a true California Girl, born and raised in Northern, college and adulthood in Southern. I’m a mom, wife, writer, and proud Breast Cancer survivor. I write original and fanfiction. Goal is to release 2-3 orig fic books in 2018 and write as much TwiFic as possible. Current Orig Fic book I’m writing is called, There’s a Pill for That, it’s a labor of love and one of the many books of my heart.

By day I work in corporate finance for a big bully corporation. I hate it. Nevertheless, I need to pay my mortgage, put my girls through college, and provide my family health insurance. So yeah, writing is my therapy, makes the miserable day job bearable.

If I didn’t want to be a writer when I grow up, I’d be a chef. I love to cook and bake. Food Network is background noise in my house and I have a huge crush on Michael Symon. I like dogs more than people (no offense) and have four fur babies. I’ve raised two kickass—literally and figuratively—daughters. Having them and being a mom was the best thing I ever did.

I’ve never met anything chocolate, salted caramel, Edward Cullen, or Robert Pattinson I have not loved. However, I’m the worst fan girl in the world. Living in LA and having worked at a studio, celebrities are like everyone else to me and I usually avoid them at all costs. If I ever saw Rob, I would probably not bug him and give him his space. I might then kick myself for it later, LOL.

I’m Alex, and I’m from the UK. To sum me up… I am a sparkly vampire lover and crazy cat lady.

I first found Twilight shortly after the first movie was released and the rest as they say is history! #TeamEdward ?

I am a qualified make-up artist and avid tweeter.

Izzy – Managing Editor

I’m Izzy, an emotionally unstable mess. I love to write noncanon Twilight and Harry Potter fan fiction. I have a million and four ideas but never any time to pop them out. Technology is my second love and when I’m not at home with the husband, kids, or dogs I’m usually breaking people’s computers at the local Geek Squad I work at. Pretty much I’m a spastic Slytherin with beautiful dreams and ambitions but my lack of focus usually finds me on the Xbox or surfing YouTube. I’m pretty awesome.

 

Naomi – Directory Editor

I’m pretty much my self. Found Fan Fiction later in  ’07, rest is history. Got interested in the whole pulled to publish fics and have been pretty much involved in that with Joanne. I listed my website, it has all of the author’s books and those who went the original fiction route. I hunt down these authors. I’m also an admin in the Who’s Who in the Twilight Fandom FB group with Kim and Fan Fic Hunters Pack which finds unidentified fics. . I handle the p2p and original fiction lists.

 

MarieCarro ”Caroline” Vanadessë – Photographer Alpha
I’m a 90’s bitch, lol! I grew up with my mom, older sister, and mom’s new husband after my biological father left us when I was four, and this has resulted in my mom, my sister, and I being very close.

I am 5’4, have brown hair and brown eyes, and my birthday is September 13th (yeah, I’m not kidding) A friend of mine actually first recommmended Twilight to me because Bella reminded her of me!

I started in the fandom as a writer, and it just developed after that when I realized how much I loved playing around with pictures and visuals.

I still write a lot, and while I am very hesitant most of the time, it would be awesome to publish something one day.

 

Monica Patterson – IT Alpha

Hi all! I’m the IT Alpha of TwiFandomNews.com. I am a Medical Coder by trade but currently out of work recovering from a car accident. My husband and I are about to celebrate our 10th anniversary and are currently expecting our first child together. I have had terrible morning sickness so far and my husband jokes the child is part vampire, but Jasper and I are keeping our mouths shut! LOL!! I am newer to the Twilight fanfic scene, only having discovered it a few years ago. Now that I am not working though, I have definitely been catching up on all the great stories out there and I even started writing myself. The only problem is I have read so many stories now that sometimes I have trouble remember canon from fanfic. Such is life. I have a strong love for all things Twilight but especially Jasper Whitlock/Jackson Rathbone. My favorite pairing is Jasper/Bella and I know that kills some people. If you need any IT help or just want to chat, hit me up on social media.
