I'm a single parent with two girls who frequently act as a captive audience for my stories. I have an abiding love of romantic fiction, with a partiality for everything Historical. I have spent the last five, nearly six years writing my stories within the genre of fanfiction on the web, as well as creating and designing my own web-page's to showcase and archive my writing and interests in old TV shows.
I have recently completed my first 'original' novel, combining my love of tall ships and grand romantic adventure set among the Fijian islands in the South Pacific. On completion of that story, it begged for a sequel which is already in pre-production. I am currently in the process of polishing and editing and creating a package of the first story ready to be submitted to an agent or publisher.
March07-sent off my first entry(via email)for an overseas writing competition to the USA - Hearts Through History. April07-sent off my first entry(hard copy)for a New Zealand writing comp - Great Beginnings.
The information I've already gleaned from this forum makes for engrossing illumination for a new writer and I look forward to reading more, as well as taking part.
Interests: Writing Grand Adventures, as well as reading them. Tall ships, saucy scenes and happy endings, website design and classic tv series of the 70's.
