Greetings, I am new to fiction, but I have been writing poetry for many years. I was educated as a historian and I am married living in Western Colorado. My wife and I love Celtic art and culture, so we were married in the Highlands of Scotland before touring all the Gaelic regions on our honeymoon. Today, I am retired from teaching due to a chronic illness, so I have taken the dive and started writing fantasy novels. I am surfing the online communities to hopefully find new friends and fellow writers to share in the tribulations and triumphs of writing. Have a wonderful day.
