Bio:

author of the month june 2017

Thank you all for helping to make 2009 an excellent year for me. You have no idea how much your comments and support have meant, and I hope to parlay that into a fun and exciting 2010!

In November 2009, I signed up for the NaNoWriMo challenge and began writing my first original story. It is now a full-length novel called Contentment. I hope to be able to publish it this year, fingers, toes and yes, even legs crossed. I never would have had the guts to attempt such an undertaking without you, dear readers. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I now have a website of my own: www.margaretethridge.com. I plan to use it as a place to post my original stories as well as some of my fan fiction. I hope that you will stop by for a visit!

Summary: Past Featured Story


NOW COMPLETE!!!

"Jim, why don't you tell Pam how you really feel?" 

 Jim and Pam deal with the stuff that comes with being on a hit show...talk shows, radio call-ins, and press junkets. They say there's no such thing as bad publicity, but is that really the case? Watch as Jim and Pam deal with being in the public eye and under the thumb of manipulative network producers. The story is told through interviews, transcripts, web pages and photos.

This was lovely. Pam's realization that she can't recapture his past, but that she is not irrevokably a part of his future was perfection. Thank you!

Author's Response: Oh, well thank you so much! I\'m really glad you liked it. :)

Summary:

They say the thing that every human being secretly desires more than anything else, is to be known...completely.

Thank you! I love that she uses the freckle as a touchstone to know that even though things are different, he's still Jim. The Jim that she still wants.

Thank was perfect. Loved Pam's little trip into fantasyland and the fact that Jim caught her. FNB and her promises of naughtiness. The picnic was so sweet and romantic, and the dessert that came after dessert, well it was incredibly hot. Thank you!

The ring on her finger looked good against the skin of his neck. She usually didn't like to kiss with her eyes open, but she couldn't stop watching it. In between her fingers, she could see a vein pulsating, throbbing in time with his heart beat, and she liked the way it made her finger move just the tiniest bit, which in turn made the ring sparkle. This, right here, is made of love.

I liked this a lot. I think it was very realistic. Pam instantly regreeting what she had done, but sticking with it. Jim hurt and worried about how he's going to handle things without her. Great job!

Date: March 21, 2009 Title: Chapter 1: I Don't Seem Obvious, Do I?

This was a fantastic chapter. I loved that Jim didn't let her off the hook, that he wouldn't let her pretend that nothing happened or downgrade it to a crush.

"I have never once wondered what it would be like to make love with Dwight." - So perfectly Jim.

Author's Response: Hey, JAMhands - my take is that Jim was just so sick of pretending that there was no way he was going to take back what he said. Also, I wasn\'t sure that that line worked. I\'m happy to see that a few of you enjoyed it. Thanks so much for reading and reviewing. :)
