Attendee Spotlight - @MaxieMooseFF

Welcome, Welcome! Everyone say hello to MaxieMooseFF!

*Waves* everyone. Here’s my Attendee Spotlight!

1. What was the 1st Twilight FanFiction that you read? Did it only entice you to read more? 
The first TwiFic I read was Confessions of a Nanny. I had written and wrote Vampire Academy at that point, but became an instant fan of the Twifandom. It’s like crackfiction in my house. Two of my favorite stories of all time are The Wedding Party by spanglemaker9 and Sin by Mamasutra, who just happens to be my roommate for the TwiFic Meetup!

2. What are you most looking forward to at the Twific Meet Up?
Meeting fellow readers and writers of the Twifandom and having a great time.

3. Are you a reader or a writer, or both?
Both! I started off in Vampire Academy FF, just finishing up my third story over there. Right now all I read are TwiFics. Writing for TwiFic has been; Postsecret Contest last fall and round 5 of the Twilight 25. I’m working on a Twilight fic that I’ll start posting after I finish my last VA story.

I also just finished my first original YA contemporary romance novel. I’m editing it and I’ll be submitting to publishers and agents in a few weeks. If no one buys my book I’ll be self publishing it, but I prefer to go the route of traditional or epublishers.

4. Have you ever been to Vegas before? If yes, tell us what you loved/hated most about it.
Yes, go to Vegas a few times a year. I live in Simi Valley, CA and have good friends that live in Henderson, NV.

I have three must do restaurants/places for this Vegas trip: 1) Emeril's New Orleans Fish House for Crab Cakes (it's at MGM, we can walk from Monte Carlo), 2) Battista's Hole in the Wall - It's old school Vegas Italian food, off strip, you have to take a taxi, but so worth it. 3) And, I love cupcakes and the Cupcake wars, so I am dying for a cupcake at the Cupcakery in the Monte Carlo.

I love to shop in Vegas. I’d like to hang by the pool, get a massage, and see Bel Ami, if at all possible.

5. Have any pets? Kids? Work?
Married, two daughters (14 & 17), the picture is me with my oldest daughter. We have two dogs, a silky and a yorkie terrier.

Right now, I work for a Fortune 50 company as an Information Technology Portfolio Manager, but would like to be a writer full time some day.

Can’t wait to meet you all!

Cheers – RenĂ© Rutter, penname RenĂ© Gilley, FF call sign MaxieMoose
