    Smile Hello everyone.

    Hi, my name is Dougie Brimson and I'm a published author and screenwriter.

    I have 14 books on my backlist, 12 of which are now available as eBooks with one, a thriller entitled The Crew, having held on to the #1 slot on the UK sports free download chart on both Amazon and iTunes for ten straight months now.

    I also wrote the Elijah Wood movie Green Street although truth to tell, that wasn't a great experience.

    I am more than happy to share my experience and what knowledge I have accrued if anyone thinks it might be of use. All you have to do is ask.

    Greetings and welcome to the watercooler


    Take a wander around the various forums, there's lots to see and lots to learn, and even some fun threads too. Come along and pop on over to the Newbie Pub (at the top of the Newbie forum) and say hi, there's plenty of friendly faces that you can chat with and lots of banter. There's also the Question of the Week thread at the top of the Newbie forum where you can answer random questions.

    Don't forget to read the newbie guide, and if you want to know what all the buttons mean check out this thread.

    There comes a time in your life when you just have to run outside and shout 'banana' as loud as you can. Are you there yet?
