    Hi from Canada

    Hi there,

    I am a new member but have read various posts for advice over the years. I write short stories of many genres, non-fiction, and a few novels. Nothing of great note, other than Z-Boat which will be re-released soon ( I hope )

    I love all sorts of writing and read many different genres. Looking forward to meeting fellow writers.
