Howdy all. I'm new here, as you might have gathered. I like to write, but so far seem unable to finish any single story due to a very short attention span and a love affair with strong coffee. My favored genre is science fiction, with a bend towards the hard stuff (though I do enjoy a good well-written space opera). I'm in my (very) late 20s and living in exile. In a manner of speaking. I'm American by birth, living in the southern hemisphere by act of wife. Yes I have indeed read the site's rules and FAQ, along with browsing around to get a look at the place for a few days before joining up. Hopefully I won't make a major faux-pas like I do at most parties. Anyways, looking forward to getting into the group.
