Why do you want to join the group? Please tell us something about yourself

To collaborate with published and aspiring writers on best practices and lessons learned. Especially interested in learning how to find a reputable editor suitable for the two novels I'm drafting.

What writing experience have you had? (New writers are welcomed and encouraged to attend!)

Former speechwriter; developed and delivered hundreds of multi-media presentations as a speaker at industry, academia, defense, and civic events.

Are you currently working on any projects?

Two. Working titles: False Witness; Baines' Undertow

Do you have skills that you would be willing to share with the group?

Happy to review others' work for plot, thematic development, effective use of metaphor; and maintaining long and short dramatic tensions along the story's long arc. Not interested in reviewing grammar.


I'm currently enjoying the highs and lows of developing fact-based fiction novels based on my personal and professional experiences stateside and abroad. My intent is to provide equal doses of entertainment and social value.

What Bob is saying about this Meetup Group

I enjoyed the prevention. Thx for making my first mtg incite full.
