Hello, new to both agnostic and this group. I am a published writer, three books on Amazon. Wrote for TV in NY and on newspapers in NC and FL. I also work with Cambridge University in England and teach American HS kids Cambridge writing classes. I am a compulsive reader. My favorites are English and Scandinavian mysteries, but also love good dramas, and must admit some "chick lit."

You can find some of my penmanship on the poets page...So, what do you think?


Welcome to the Fold...Enjoy!!!


Hello! I am also a punlished author with two books. You said you wrote for TV. I’ve been wanting to expand my writing to TV/Movies. What did you write for TV if you don’t mind me asking?

I was lucky: small company, but growing. I began by doing TV commercials and worked my way up to made for TV movies. The way to "get in" at least for me...get a job doing ANYTHING at a TV station. I started by getting coffee and finding the dimensions of a weather plane, getting permits to close the GW Bridge and hiring gaffers. That is what I did to begin. Then I got friendly with people who were willing to take a chance with me.


So, what do you do in your spare time?

I have a great group of friends and love to people watch. Fodder for my books; I admit to sometimes listening to conversations around me. I once used a whole discussion on roach motels I had overheard when I needed to add a bit of lightness in a murder mystery. I love to travel. I go home to NYC as often as possible and I love Boston. I write, of course, read everything, but LOVE British and Scandinavian mysteries. And I also have been trained by Cambridge University to teach American high school kids Cambridge University writing classes. I have a lot of interests: love films, art, very eclectic taste in music and I love food: cooking and good restaurants.

@Lavender719 You are on a roll, girl.


Hiya! Welcome.

I have three novels self published on Amazon. It sounds like you will fit in very well in this group.


Welcome. Plenty of literary people here - authors, journalists, maybe some bloggers, and lots of readers. The site is full of interesting and pleasant people with lots to say so don't be put off if you come across the one or two who are finding life difficult and tend to vent their spleen on the rest of us.

Welcome. I too am looking froward to seeing some of your input. (input on your output? 😉 )

Please, make yourself comfortable. We have quite a spread here, which is precisely what I was hoping for when starting this group.
