    Smile Greetings from Taiwan!

    Hi all! I'm a budding South African writer of fiction currently living in Taiwan, where I teach English to pay the bills. I've been writing stories since I was a child and currently have several works that are almost ready for publication. I hope that I can contribute in a meaningful way to this community and that this is the start of a long and prosperous posting history! Have a good day everyone.
