    Thought I'd say hi...

    I've been browsing the boards for a few weeks, posting here and there, but thought I'd officially introduce myself.

    I write mainly horror/thrillers, but after burning through two agents and no publication yet (a long and painful saga) I'm focused on short stories right now, while I get my mojo back. Happy to meet everybody here. It feels good to be doing something fresh.
