Hi everyone! When I was about Eleven years old I decided that I wanted to be a writer. I decided to join this forum to help me improve my writing skills and to connect with other writers. I live in the southern Appalachian mountains which is a great inspiration for my writing, especially with the large varieties of wildlife. I am currently writing a book that I hope will one day get published. I have loved reading from a very young age; my favorite genre of books is fantasy (Though I also greatly enjoy mystery ). I am very excited about joining this forum and I look forward to writing here with all of you!
