What is the Genre you are writing?

Sci-fi. Currently working on a novel about anti-gravity based space travel, "The Angel and the Hippogriff" as working title. Previously wrote a semi-autobiographical book about living in Amsterdam, some short stories. Nothing published except technical papers, patents, presentations and the like on real science. Fairly widely read across genres, from classics to miscellaneous current and popular fiction.

Are you a committed writer/critiquer ?

As a hobbyist. I write about three hours a day, most days. Would be glad to trade critiquing others' work for criticism of mine. Glad to contribute chemistry or general science info if desired for someone's stories. So far, writing for fun, writing what I want to read... probably time to try to publish something.


I'm a retired chemist interested in writing since high school. Ideally, interested in getting published, but failing that, publishing on Amazon, etc. Science fiction, crime, some fantasy are favorites to read. Just finishing a novel.

What Tom B. is saying about this Meetup Group
