Hi, what a great board area - it's the first time I've seen it.

I have a YA novel that I am finishing up but could really use an "expert" to answer a few questions in either/or of the following areas:

1. Undersea life and activity
2. Vietnam (country and culture)
3. Scuba diving

Thanks in advance!

My husband served in Vietnam, and was a POW, so if you have questions he may be able to help.

Looking forward to your questions,
Chacounne

My current WIP is set 100% underwater, and I've more research than I know what to do with. I can't help much with the scuba stuff, though.

I've done a fair amount of snorkeling but no scuba. Might be able to answer a few questions.

My husband is a licensed scuba diver, so he may be able to help you out. Feel free to PM or e-mail me, and I'll relay it to him. :)

Hi Joan

I'm a scuba diver who has thumbed through an underwater marine life field guide or two. I've also attended media briefings and interviewed people who were doing innovative underwater things. Send me the questions and I'll try and see what I can do?

Don't know much about Vietnam, but feel free to include those questions I've got people around I could ask when we are not too busy playing tag the least busy one.

HUGE thanks to all those who responded! I'm ashamed to say that I've been away from the board and buried in another project, but I need to get this one off to an editor so I will be sending PMs to those of you who so graciously offered your help. Thanks again!
