Hello and welcome to my fiction writing page.
I’ve always enjoyed writing fiction, ever since my love affair with ‘The Titanic’ when I was about 6 years of age. I loved to write about that unsinkable boat!
Since then, I’ve grown up quite a bit and my skills have developed somewhat – helped along by a degree majoring in Journalism and the courses I took in creative writing, screen writing and my love of poetry.
I’ve only recently discovered some online writing challenges aimed at sharpening skills, and have started to connect in with the community that participates. I love to read others’ work, and I’m happy to play critic if you’re interested in that.
I’ll be updating my entries within this page from time to time as I enter new challenges, so feel free to check back to see if there’s anything new.
If you’re still interested to know more about me, feel free to browse my site and comment. I always reply!
