    Hi from a daydreamer

    Hello everyone! I write YA, no particular genre, just whatever grabs me. I've been doing the query dance with agents for several months now, with a few requests for partials followed by rejections. I have two completed YA fantasy/romance novels. I'm currently working on a YA contemporary urban fantasy/romance and a YA contemporary paranormal romance. When writer's block hits, I write fan fiction to keep the creative juices flowing. I've been doing my own editing which is tedious at best. I joined the forums to connect with other writers first and foremost, though it would be nice to find a beta or two.
