I work and play in the cold tundra that is Minnesota. I have an unhealthy obsession with Peter Facinelli, Billy Burke and Gil Birmingham. I’ve met both Peter and Gil, and am on the hunt to meet Billy. This WILL happen one day! I love dark fics and any fics I can find that center around Charlie, Carlisle or Billy – which aren’t many. I have an Associates Degree as a Paralegal and currently have a crap-tastic job doing criminal background checks. When I’m not beta-ing or writing, I spend time with my husband and two kids who have turned my hair gray at age 30.

I came west from Virginia twenty years ago and now live in Nevada with wild horses, casinos, and brothels. Despite how exciting that sounds, I’m a pretty boring married mother of three, working full-time up until recently and hopefully soon to regain employment. Poor grammar and punctuation in a bad story doesn’t bother me–I just don’t read it. I mourn, however, when I see what could and should be a good story drown in misplaced commas and apostrophes. I am compelled to help; thus, my association with PTB. I’ve been an editor since 2003, a beta since October 2010, and a PTB mod since January 2011.

Hi, Audra here. I live in Wisconsin and have been here my whole life. The stories are mostly true, everyone walks around with a beer in their hand, and a wedge of cheese on their head. I have a lovely daughter who rolls her eyes every time I mention Twilight. I am currently not working, which leaves plenty of time for my favorite activity: reading. I love to read but hate to write. It makes me sad to read a story that has a great plot, but terrible execution.

I live in NYC, work too much, and sometimes drink too much. My addictions, aside from reading, editing and writing odd fanfiction, are news, shoes, and cosmetics. I liberally try to indulge in all of them despite the fact that some of them I’m certain are not healthy. Aside from my addictions, I’m really pretty boring. Actually, even those are kind of tame and boring these days.

I hail from the Great White North– Northern Ontario, Canada, to be specific– where our seasons consist of Winter, Still Winter, More Winter, and Construction. And really, is there a better thing to do on a cold, snowy day than stay in and edit? I’ve been with PTB since May 2009, and am loving every minute of it. I’m joining Monika as a poor post-grad with an Education degree (and a History/English degree as well), and am now in the eternal search of a teaching job. Heard of any? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

I don’t exactly know where I’m from: I’ve lived in the south, northeast, midwest, northwest and now California! By day, I spend hours of my life staring at a computer screen. By night, I play with my baby girl and all things Twilight. My favorite genre of fanfic these days is E/J slash, but I really love it all and am willing to try anything with plot. I also spend way too much time watching TV with my husband. But a girl’s gotta relax after a hard day at work! Like most other betas, many grammar mistakes make my eyes twitch, so I figured I’d help out those in need with a little bit of the grammar knowledge pounded into my head in middle school.


Lynda

Duties: Story Applications

My name is Lynda, and I’m a betaholic. Actually, I’m really a married mother of two girlies living in Atlantic Canada. I work out of my house in IT, testing websites to make sure they do what they’re intended to do. In 2009, I picked up a book called Twilight, wondering if it was appropriate for my daughter. The rest, as they say, is history. While I don’t write, I do read and beta every spare minute I get. I like to think I beta to help authors better their stories, but, who am I kidding? I totally do this for me and the thrill I get by living vicariously through stories that authors so graciously share with me.

I was born, raised and currently reside in the Big Apple and can’t imagine living anywhere else. I work full time at a major medical center, go to school mostly full-time where I can usually be found with my nose in a biology book, and have two not-so-little girls. Word confusion and comma splices make my eye twitch. (Your/you’re and loose/lose haunt my dreams) I love the em dash way too much and have been accused of getting people hooked. I took a stab at writing, and I hope to finish my multichap before 2011. I’ve been with PTB for about a year and a half, and I’ve been a mod for the last seven months.

Graduated from University in 2010 with a BA in Elementary Education and slowly making my mark in the world. Originally from Washington state and now living out my second year in Japan teaching English to a bunch of kindergartners. Missing home like crazy, along with the love of my life: my dog, Kahlua. Wishing I had a car but making do with my bike. Love to write but brain is usually too tired to do so. Absolutely hate line-drying and willing to pedal the fifteen minutes to the nearest laundromat. Bugs scare me. Starbucks is yummy. I wanna marry a man with an accent. Creatively technical. Chaotically organized. I’m going on a bear hunt. Gonna catch a big one. Peace.
