Hey, everyone! My name is Derek, and I figured I would stop in and see what this writing forum is like! . I'm (going to be) 34, own a home in CA and freelance full time (no bosses! yay!). I'm into chess, off-road trails, pool, music (I am a drummer), OLD cars, movies, beer, heck - you name it. I love horror short stories, and am a huge fan of Lovecraft and King. Well, that's it for now, I think I'll have a look-see!
