    New Member - Francis van Zandt

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Freddy van Zandt, Feb 4, 2017.

    Hey everyone. I'm Francis/Freddy/Fred van Zandt. Relation to the van Zandts of old New Amsterdam is a yes, though all their money is sadly gone so I work as an insurance agent by day. By night, I'm a Fantasy writer currently querying agents for my first novel. I like to write non-standard protagonists - old folks, inept heroes and the like. I haven't too many people in my immediate area to share my writing with, so here's to collaborating with all of you!

    What a shame that the old money is gone, but at least now you can pretend to play the part of a struggling writer (haha!). Good luck with the queries... be sure to share your progress!

    Rockland County! It's actually just north of NYC, and I LOATHE calling it "upstate," but according to technical geographical people, anything not NYC or Long Island is upstate. I have mountains, though. That's what counts!

    I was really young then, just a boy. I remember tons of fishing spots with my dad (I still have the same tackle box I had when I was 8 years old) and Ausable Chasm.

    There's so much great New York upstate, I regret that I've only seen bits and pieces on long drives.
