My first love is High fantasy, but my first finished novel draft is Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance, and I've been wandering into superhero territory lately. I've sold three short stories, to the second and third Northern Lights anthologies, and a forthcoming book called "No Shit, There I Was!"
I really need more social interaction. I've heard that beta reading other people's work is a great way to build your own writing muscle. (Hmm, where did I hear that...?)
I'm one of those folks who's "wanted to be a writer" since I was in my teens, but never /worked/ at it. Some years ago, I decided to change that, but I really need more encouragement and outside input to keep me motivated and working. MinnSpec helps!
A wonderful, kind-hearted, inventive bunch of folks. Great company.
