Hello!

Hi everyone,

I'm a children's author who's been a lurker on these forums for an inordinate amount of time, and thought that after all the help I've received here, it's only fair to dip my toe in and attempt to give back to the community.

I'm looking forward to participating (at long last) as more than a "guests online" number at the bottom of the page!

Cheers,

Notti

Welcome, former lurker. I think that's how a lot of us end up here. I know I lurked for a while. When I kept coming to this place to look up agents and publishers, as well as writing questions, I decided I might as well join.

Nearly 4,000 posts later, I'm glad I did. Hope to see you around.
