Introduction

Hi! I'm another virtual member. I'm a full-time technical trainer and part-time non-fiction writer. My interests in SF tend toward the classics: Asimov, Bradbury, Clarke on down to Zelazny.

What sort of stories do you write? And if you have anything published, tell us about it (even if it's not SF.) We love to hear about all your successes.

I write technical articles for TechRepublic.com, one of CNet's websites. My focus areas are databases (Oracle and SQL Server), Change Management, Project Management, and self-employment.

What brings you to the SF Writers Meetup? Is there anything that you hope the group will do for you?

I'm attracted by the writing resources compiled here, and the ability to learn about the business side of writing even though our genres may be different.

    Hi Bob:
    I just became the Organizer of the German Language Meetup Group in Summerfield, NC and I wanted to thank you for your RSVP advice. I just moved from Plano, TX and I am GLAD that I finally see fall colors around here again.

    Bob- Always insightful, helpful, and witty. Never a boob. Well, almost; I think that sombrero might be a bit boob-ish. ;)

    Bob --

    A pillar of the Meetup community, and one of the best people I've ever met through the service. I am completely and totally his fan.

    Bob is one of the most well-informed Members on Meetup today. His clever and insightful posts have brought many of the murkier workings of Meetup into crystal clarity. In other words, him be smart. Ignore Bob's advice at your own peril, folks. Bob knows Meetup!
