Hello to everyone, my name is Suzanne. I'm very new to professional writing and this is really stepping out on to the proverbial ledge for me. Iím an avid reader and tend to lean more toward high fantasy and urban fantasy books. Iíve been writing fan fiction for the past fifteen years but it was for private groups and never professionally. I love creating characters and stories but Iíve always struggled with creating my own world.

About a year ago, something clicked for me and the world opened up. Iíve had this world and its inhabitants dancing around in my mind all that time and slowly Iíve found time to put them down on paper.

Iím married with three kids ranging from fourteen to nine and my husband is a stay-at-home dad. Since Iím the sole support for five people, I have little time to write but I find myself constantly thinking about this story development, characters and possibilities.

When I found myself writing on my fifteen minute breaks, during classes that I teach and any other spare moment I could find, I realized that maybe I should think about letting others read my work. So here I am and grateful to have found a place to grow in my writing.

Welcome form me too.

As you will see there are other busy writers here with jobs and children who can relate to you. And there's a web site for writing mothers.


And you will also see that this is a place full of friendly people who know a thing or three about writing.

However eve as you look around in haste don't forget if you see a unicorn be careful she can be mean
