I've been a member of Fanstory since 2011, and it's been an amazing journey. I've made so many friends on here and learned a lot. I started out as a poet, my first love. It was while doing this that I began taking an interest in children's stories, written in rhyme. When I had my first book, Hedgerow Capers, snapped up by a publisher, I was elated. I now have seven children's books published.

I wanted to spread my wings and began writing prose. My first book, This Time- That Time, was chosen as the book of the month seven times in 2016, which gobsmacked me! I was so proud. Then to receive the FanStory trophy of third-ranked novelist for that year, just about made my life! All three books in the Trilogy have now been published. The 2nd bk - Beyond That Time, and the 3rd bk, This Time It's Personal, both on Amazon with the first book in the trilogy.

Eric's Epic Adventures are underway, with the 1st bk, Eric and the Aliens, and the 2nd bk, Eric and the Indians, are both on Amazon. The 3rd book is still in the making. :)

All I can say is a big thank you to all my friends on here for the help and support you've given me since I joined, without you, I wouldn't have got this far.

sandramitchell: Hi everyone, I'm sorry I'm slow at reviewing, I have shingles around my waist and it's so painful to sit, stand, or lay down for long periods of time. It's driving me nuts! I'm reviewing as much as I can at the moment. 😪 xxx

    Aaron Milavec: Surprise, surprise!

    I click your name to get a taste of the #1 writer of books. I notice your pic, and I immediately remember that you commented on one of my works a few days back. Neat!

    What this demonstrates is that the number of active participants here is not so large as to have the joy and surprise of bumping into someone you know by accident.

    Now I just read your bio. What fortitude and what flexibility! And I learn that your very first book was "snapped up by a publisher." This is a rare event. I have a whole drawer of rejection letters.

    Peace and joy during you holidays,
