    Talking Greetings from Nowhere!

    Hello! My name is Nicole and I'm a writer/actress/director/admin assistant in Wenatchee, WA. That's on the East side of the state where we get over 300 days of sunshine a year, i.e., NOT Seattle. Although, Seattle's gorgeous, don't get me wrong.

    My cousin-in-law Marissa pointed me in the direction of this community and I'm looking forward to getting to know folks. After many years (I'm 45) of writing for myself, for school, and for fun, I've decided to pursue publication. I have had a play produced by Regent University in Virginia Beach, VA. When the leading lady got a terrible migrane, I had to step in and learn the part in three days. You'd think having written it, I could memorize quickly, but no...t'was a grand adventure to say the least.

    I have one novel written for which I hope to get help with a query letter after I have gotten involved here more. I also have a novel-length "Tron" fanfiction linked on my website, if you are so inclined. And, yes, I did come up with Light Jets on my own before "Tron Legacy."

    I really look forward to interacting and getting to know people. So...hi!

    Good luck Nicole! I grew up just north of Spokane, and spent a year in Pendleton Ore as well. Been to your area a number of times.

    I'm sure you'll get published :-)
