INFORMATION
I think I always was a writer and a poet, but I remember clearly my Lyceum years and my debut as a writer with a long fiction story. For that one, I was applauded by the prof and students alike. I didn't stop writing and started poetry as well. As an adult, I took additional classes online, Iowa State University for creative writing and poetry, Wisconsin for Greek and Roman Mythology.
I am a pensioned older widow now with all the time I need to write, write, and write more. Many poems were published in a variety of literary magazines, anthologies, journals online and in print.
I hope to find a publisher now for two series of stories and a chapbook of 42 related poems.
Meanwhile, I enjoy new friendships and wonderful reviews for my posts at FanStory.

    Gypsymooncat: I remember getting my first "recognised" status way back in 2008, not long after I joined. I felt honoured!

    So enjoy your time here Marjon. Fanstory is a place that'll boost your confidence in your writing, so long as you take on board constructive comments given by those reviewers who actually give a damn.

    Welcome to the Fanstory Family!
