Pleased to meet everyone! I've been a writer nearly all my life, and have recently self-published a children's story, although this is not my usual genre. I tend toward the macabre, surreal, or ah... not sure how to describe it -- gonzo, perhaps. Gritty stuff... On the other hand, I'm currently working on another children's book. LOL I've worked part-time, for the past 25 years, as an editor, writing coach, and proofreader. All that being said, I still consider myself a rank beginner, and I'm still learning. The more I know, the more I know how much I don't know! Again, pleased to meet everyone. Looking forward to interacting here.
