Hello Everyone Can't Post

Hi everyone,

I live in a place where the roaches and the scorpions gang up to conquer the humans. I'm a newbie, been writing for three years, learning as I go along. My goal on this site, just to see what's here and what pieces of information I can pick up to improve my stories.

I write female/female fantasy and a little bit of sci-fi. Think wizards and elves with a female cast if it will help. :)

Right now I'm working on tweaking a fantasy story I'm hoping to enter into a contest. After that, as much as I'm drawn to that subject, it's back to tweaking past stories that's gathering dust at the moment in my archives.

Good to be here.

Sounds like you are up to some interesting work! Do you have a target audience for your fiction?

Most of what I have written these days has been poetry. But I have been editing some great fiction at work (cambridgeeditors.com). One manuscript we're working on is aimed for a young adult audience and is along the fantasy side. Good luck with the contest!

It's funny you should ask that. I've worked hard to make my stories for the mature women audience. I think that was the problem though. Now I create stories and let them fall into whatever category they fall into. I concentrate on fantasy/sci-fi for the women audience. After that, it's whatever made the story a story.
