Author has written 7 stories for General, and Romance.

Hey all, Vanderhall here. Welcome to my...lair... When I say lair, I truly mean the place where my writing resides. Some of it, that is. I have a few other pennames, one for poetry and one for another story that used to be on this one and one other with a bunch of secret crap! Anyway, here are some ofmy stories!! Only three are done (that would be Bryce, A Perfect Game and Sophomore Season) and the rest are in the works.

Currently, I have three babies: Losing Him. It's sad but beautiful, gritty but soft, harsh but delicate. And Grounded to Short, I had to keep going with something baseball, right? Yeah, I'm addicted, I think. And then there's Twilight Sets, my little historical, fantasy story. Read them and tell me what you think. So, that's it for now... please review my stuff if you read it... I don't mind CONSTRUCTIVE critisism but I really don't enjoy those pesky little flames. Thanks bunches! ~Vandi

and to break the icy exterior

is to break the glass cutting my heart

and if you could realize how much you mean to me

you would look at me differently

the love that burns

the love that's untouchable

the love that won't return

i'd reach out to grab you

but my hand passes right through

About Me
I am... 21, daddy's little girl, a writer, brunette, a shop-a-holic, easily annoyed, a diehard Yankees fan, a bitch, obsessive compulsive, a true Manhattan girl, easily addicted, a Blazer fan, sweet... sometimes, a photographer, quiet, easily amused, a princess, a future millionare, a bit of an alcoholic, just a little girl lost in my own little world...
I love... my boy, to write, kissing the Yankees, to sleep, BASEBALL!, to draw, to shop, New York, movies, books, Starbucks, Sylvia Plath even though she's a tad crazy, vodka and lots of it, basically every alcohol in existance, reviews, headlines on Leno, music , caffine, photography, the way you can see your reflection in the glossy photopaper, pink electric guitars, Ferrari Spiders, Abercrombie jeans, my flat iron, J-Crew flip flops, jungle juice, my family, Kate Spade bags, my friends, my dogs, Manolo Blahnik's, MySpace, inside jokes, having someone's arms to hide in...
I hate... the Red Sox, people who don't have to work for things, riding the bus, CD's that skip, losing things, getting frustrated, people who read over your shoulder, Carson Daily, bandwagoners, not being perfect, being so far away from my family, frizz, proofreading, literary agents, getting up early, rain, humidity, waiting for the calm after the storm, loss...

...gravedigger, when you dig my grave, could you make it shallow so I can feel the rain...

the one thing that stays mine

and some days, i'm somebody else.
