Why our group? What do you hope to contribute as a member of our group? PLEASE NOTE YOU MUST FILL OUT ALL QUESTIONS TO BE CONSIDERED..

It seems like you have attracted a smart and lively group of people. I'm a great listener - I'm fascinated by how people's life experiences, culture, and perspectives on the 'art' of writing or story telling shape their opinions of different books.

Favorite Authors??

Katherine Mansfield, Colette, Graham Greene, enjoying short stories by Lydia Davis right now

Beloved Books??

The End of the Affair, The Bell Jar, The Secret Garden, everything by Roald Dahl (guess I'm a kid at heart), more modern - I loved American Wife and other works by Curtis Sittenfeld.

Tell us a little more about who you are, where you come from...

Just moved back to New York with my British husband and we're looking forward to meeting new people. When I'm not reading health journals I adore short stories (reading and writing), longer fiction - especially early 20th century, and swing dancing.


Briefly...I'm nearly 30, work in health policy, spend all my money on travel and too much time thinking of short stories I'd like to write instead of actually writing them.
