Attendee Spotlight - @gingerandgreen

Hullo, hullo from across the pond! Welcome, gingerandgreen!


This is a picture of me and my Oldest, taken a year ago at a wedding in Cape Town, South Africa. I actually live in England, and I'm travelling to the meet-up with my Irish friends Cared and Mary. We're going to meet Ilovealion there a day early, to bond. We haven't met face to face yet, so this is crazily exciting. Going to Vegas to meet the amazing people that are going too is one of the most selfish and insane things I have ever done, and I can hardly wait.

Both of my lovely teenage girls are slightly embarrassed by my Twific obsession, and won't indulge me at the cinema or in any other way. My sweet man is very supportive. He even pre-reads my WiP for me. He is my enabler, and the reason I can come and play.

I am a teacher. I teach adult literacy and English for speakers of other languages; and I am a dyslexia assessor. My guilty pleasure is reading and loving the fabulous stories that I secretly think are written by dyslexic authors - but I will never divulge which ones. I think storytelling is so much more important than grammar or spelling or punctuation. I guess that's why I love Twilight - for the wild storyline. Of course, I also love the stories that are perfectly structured, literary works, and expertly beta-ed - and there are plenty of those in this fandom.

I've been fortunate to have travelled a lot in my life, and I've been to Vegas before - 21 years ago, with My Man, not long after we married. I wonder how much it's changed? I've lived a lot of life since then, and I hope this trip will be one of the highlights, just like the last trip was. 

Can't wait to meet you all!

Thank you so much for sending us your story! We can't wait to meet you (and make you say American things in your funny accent.) ;-D 

Send us your spotlight, people! We want to know who you are! :-D
