Red face So this is the cool place to be....

Good evening or at least it is where I am. My name is Andrea, sometimes known as Rhea. I have been told about this place for some time from several different sources. I like to think if I work really hard I might get something actually out in the world of writing. In any case, um, what would you like to know? I live in the southwest, I write fantasy/paranormal/romance. One of those anyway depending on the story. I'm old enough to know better but I still act like a goon.
Thanks for letting me ramble and hope I make some good friends here.

Welcome. Fantasy is always a good thing to write, though my interests tend more toward the epic.
