Introduction

I have been a satisfied member of HWG now for one year. During that year I completed a novel I started in 1993. The valuable critiques I have received propelled me to a new level of the craft. I moved to LV from Eastern Oregon , in October of 2012.

What can we do to help you as a Writer? Share with us what you write.

I write Historic fiction, Memoir, have two Novels in progress and personal essays. I want to publish but have never made any serious attempt. With the help of HWG I plan to make 2016 the year!

Are you currently published?

Not in any commercial sense. I won a writing contest ($100) and they put my Historic Non-Fiction essay on their web site, and a couple of pieces in Paranormal Times ($75 ea) and a church magazine in 1967 ($13!). Maybe this makes me a starving artist! Actually, I spent a good deal of my adult career life writing grants for non-profits to wide acclaim and great success. This next chapter is for me.

Would you like to read in front of a critique group?

Yes, definitely want an opportunity for critique on both my Memoir pieces and my two novels in progress. I don't just want to be a writer, I want to be a good writer and critique is a great way to learn.

We are the host of the Las Vegas Writers' Conference, would you be interested in attending?

I am registered and paid in full as of yesterday.
