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.

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!"

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

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!

What Jo R. is saying about this Meetup Group

A wonderful, kind-hearted, inventive bunch of folks. Great company.
