Wow, I signed up earlier in the week and keep meaning to say hello and to introduce myself. Every time I land here I get side tracked! Well you know, the road to hell is paved with good intensions! Anyway, I'm an engineer by trade and have spent many years building large bridges and urban interstate projects. About 3 years ago I was hired to write grants, technical papers for journals, press releases, etc. I've been writing short stories for years and I've recently embarked on a bigger project, a novel. I enjoy reading, writing, editing, and conversing with other writers. Looks like I hit the jackpot!
