I'm an aspiring fiction author. As an IBM technical writer I wrote and published several new technical documents. Before that, I wrote a column for my local newspaper in Cornwall, New York.
I love writing fiction and have one completed book, one children's book and am working on my second fiction.
I would like to be with a group of people who have the same passion for writing that I have, who have experienced the same ups and downs, and some, who hopefully, have been rewarded with getting their work published. I would like to compare notes, to see what others are writing and share what I am writing. Ultimately, I would like to learn how a writer can improve skills and what it takes to get published--assuming that getting published is Nirvana, which it might not be.
I went to meetup.com and asked to see writers groups in and around the Holly Springs area.
I grew up in China, Vietnam and Cambodia, the child of missionary parents. I love cooking, gardening, cats, traveling, and most of all, writing.
I'm a retired technical writer who has lived in Holly Springs almost 20 years.
