As I'm sure it's obvious, I'm a newbie! A little about myself... I'm from England and I would consider myself to be an amateur writer insofar as I haven't had anything published as yet. I have written a few things - one of which is a stage play which will be staged in March 2011 so that is very exciting for me. I have written a screenplay which I am in the process of sending off to several producers and the like. Fingers crossed! I am currently writing a novel which is proving to be harder than both of the above put together! I have a heck of a lot of experience on the stage (as an actor) and have worked backstage in several different roles so I know that business like the back of my mind - hence the writing for stage and screen. Writing a book is a whole different ball game, but I'm loving it and hope to one day give up being a Legal Secretary in a sleepy office and become a professional, full time writer with lots of dogs running around!!!
