Hello, all. I am just starting up here & trying to get a feel for all the threads, and the direction of the forums. My own interests are in writing urban fantasy, using a lot of real history and realistic characters, with a little bit of the supernatural thrown in. No vampires or werewolves, but otherwise open to ideas, esp with putting together plots & learning to write great conversations between characters. Looking forward to reviewing the works of others, and eventually getting the courage up to post some of my own.
