I am a 63 year old New Zealander who has spent most of my life in academic writing but now turned to fiction. Like my main character in the project likely to figure here, I'm a genre-bender not a gender-bender. I don't know how to classify my novel, New Little Princess: it's a science fiction-future-fantasy (in the contrary-to-fact sense, not dungeons-and-dragons sense) -political/intelligence drama-music/entertainment/internet-young adult/new adult-environmental-etc.etc. Anyway, like you, I like to write and I like to learn more about writing. So that is why I am here.
