MEET THE ADMIN TEAM!
About :: Lori Joffs (A.K.A. Alphie) ~ Site Founder, Co-Owner, News Writer, & On Air Personality
Lori is responsible for a vast amount of the Lexicon material from the timeline, to chapter summaries, to character bios. If there is a quote from the book she can tell you exactly where it is located on the page having practically a photographic memory. Lori is also the on-air personality for much of our YouTube footage. She was the Lexicon’s representative on the official set visit of both of Twilight and New Moon. She has interviewed Taylor Lautner, Kristen Stewart, and Robert Pattinson live.
Lori has been involved with various fandoms for several years now, writing mostly Remus Lupin fiction. She obviously has a thing for unnatural creatures, as her obsession for werewolves and vampires tends to be a bit out of control. She is the mother of two, and when she isn’t playing with them or on the Internet she can be found acting or singing on a stage somewhere in the Midwest. If ever she gets a moment of free time(HA!), she likes to scrapbook, play mindless video games, and watch pointless reality TV, which to her is an oxy-moron.
About :: Laura Byrne-Cristiano (A.K. A. Pelirroja or Pel)~ Co-Owner, News Writer, & On Air Personality
Laura is the chief content writer for much of the Lexicon’s daily news. She notably debunked the Vanessa Hudgens casting, and Stephenie Meyer lawsuit rumors ahead of major media. She evaluates items of interest to the fans of the Twilight world on a daily basis. She routinely connects with representatives from EW, Access Hollywood, and EXTRA to name a few.
Back in 2003 Laura “met” Lori on a Harry Potter site devoted to the character of Remus Lupin. Lori, with whom shares her Remus Lupin and Jane Austin obsessions, got her into Twilight by nagging, begging, and pleading for someone else to read it. Lori, in case no one has noticed, is persistent. Laura is still stunned that she bought the book, since she has been terrified by vampires as long as she can remember.
Laura is a native New Yorker who has now jumped the river and lives in New Jersey. Fan obsessions have lead her all over the world for movie and book releases, and she’s sure that even more travel awaits her now that she has found the Twilight universe. When not mulling over the lives of 100+year old vampires,Laura can probably be found on a stage somewhere acting, singing, or trying to dance without tripping over her own two feet.
About :: Jennifer Lamoureux (A.K.A. Be My Escape) ~ Administrator, Camera Person, Music & News Content Writer
Jen is the chief content writer for all music coverage from well-known groups like 100 Monkeys, Bobby Long, MuteMath, and Muse to up-in-coming stars of tomorrow like The Bella Cullen Project and Goodnight Juliet. She is also the genius behind the lens at all Lexicon filmings. She was responsible for much of the footage during the Lexicon’s set visits, was on the red carpet at the Twilight premiere teaming up with Kaleb Nation (A.K.A the Twilight Guy).
A teacher by day, Jen works with special needs students in New England.She became a fan in the summer of 2006 after looking at the book numerous times due to the cover but always putting it back down because of the vampires. Eventually she bought the book, read it in one night, and went on the internet to learn more about it.Jen met Lori and Laura when on a whim she flew to Nashville for a New Moon book signing.Since then she has become an integral part of the Lexicon team.

About:: Seraphyn ~ The Super Sweet Technical Helper
Seraphyn is a recent college graduate who is seriously doubting the draw of the “real world.” She has always been a bookworm and hopes to continue being one for the rest of her life. She was introduced to Twilight by one of her younger sister in May of 2006, and proceeded to read the book four times in the first week alone. From there it was a natural leap to the beauty of the lexicon.
She first met Stephenie Meyer, Alphie, and Pel in Nashville in November of 2006, and became a part of the lexicon’s moderator staff a couple of months after that. She helped organize Eclipse Prom and, if you took a picture with “Edward” and “Jacob,” you saw her and her other half keeping watch on the front of the line. For the next couple of years Sera will be working full time and finishing the numerous novels she hopes to publish in the future. She is married to her Edward.
