I'm a romance author who has four published books and another in the pipe. Writing is my new favorite thing to do, now that I'm nearly retired from my original career of programming computers. I must admit that this is much more fun.

Hi everyone, I'm Kerin Freeman from New Zealand though British born, and my background is in editing/proof reading.
Two of my books, a biography of a very courageous man who was posthumously given the George Cross medal, 'The Civilian Bomb Disposing Earl' was published in 2015 by Pen & Sword, military publishers, UK : http://www.pen-and-sword.co.uk/The-Civilian-Bomb-Disposing-Earl-Hardback/p/7855
My second book, a novel,'War and Chance', see Amazon https://www.amazon.com/War-Chance-Kerin-Freeman/dp/1612961592 is the story of a young naive British soldier sent to war to fight on foreign soil, where he witnesses and takes part in horrors beyond his imagination. He's taken off the beach at Dunkirk to recuperate from his injuries and shellshock in Netley Hospital in Southampton.
I am now working on two other books, one a novel based on a true story, 'The Milkbar Murder', a miscarriage of justice set in New Zealand in the 1950s, and the other, 'One Glorious Summer' is a time travel novel set in an idyllic village in south east England.
If anyone needs help in either editing or research, do let me know.

Charlotte Henley Babb (http://bit.ly/CHBabb)
Writing fiction that makes people laugh while they recreate their lives.
Having (mis)spent my youth teaching English in high schools and junior colleges, I have had a few publications, two SF story cycles of six pieces in a space opera anthology Port Nowhere and now, my first novel, Maven Fairy Godmother: Through the Veil. Maven won the 2014 Science fiction and Fantasy award from Sharp Writ Books, and an honorable mention for Novels for Adults from the National Federation of Press Women.
I won an Eppie for my poems in an anthology for children, The Thing in the Tub. My other credits include an article in Circle Sanctuary magazine, and a meditation in the Upper Room. I collected stories from the Maven universe that had been published online and collected them into Maven’s Fractured Fairy Tales, now available on Kindle and in paperback. I have a collection of Southern Fiction and a collection of magic in the real world.
I began writing when I could hold a piece of chalk and scribble my name–although I sometimes mistook “Chocolate” for “Charlotte” on the sign at the drug store ice cream counter.
When my third-grade teacher allowed me access to the fiction room at the school library, I discovered Louisa Alcott and Robert Heinlein, an odd marriage of the minds. These two authors, along with many others, have had the most influence on my desire to share my point of view with the world and to explore how the world might be made better. I had already read Black Beauty, Alice in Wonderland, and a good bit of King Arthur and Robin Hood.
Moving beyond the first half century of my life, I have begun writing the sequel to Maven, and a steampunk novel set in an alternate timeline for 19th century North America.
I bring to any project a number of experiences, including work as a technical writer, gasket inspector, cloth store associate, girl Friday, and telephone psychic.
I study mythology and psychology to deepen my work with themes from ancient sources. Sharing perspectives with people from across the country gives me time to delve into the cultural notions that are as invisible to us as water is to fish!
Why Charlotte Henley Babb?
I added my maiden name back into my official name for my second marriage, and when I was widowed, I kept it. I like being a “B” rather than an “H” or a “W”, and while according to the all-knowing Internet, there are about 20 Charlotte Henleys and Charlotte Babbs, there is only this one Charlotte Henley Babb.

Looking forward to meeting new friends and readers here!
Greetings! I'm happy to accept your invitation to join the Literary Net. I'm the author of three novels published by Whiskey Creek Press and one, "Escape from Ambergris Caye" that I recently self-published through CreateSpace and KindleDirect. Incidentally, I now know why publishers make the "big bucks"! My novels are listed on Amazon and Simon & Schuster. Stop by my website at joanmauch.com and say hello. I look forward to meeting you.
Hi. My name is Julienne Holmes, and I'm a writer...I'm hoping that eventually I can become more than just that. My goal is to one day be successful enough that I can live off my writing. Yet, right at this time I haven't achieved that goal...So, all I can say is, that I'll just keep trying; until I reach that goal.
Hi. I'm Vic Fortezza. I have seven books in print, and an eighth on the way, all available at Amazon and on Kindle. Check out my profile for more information. All the best from Brooklyn.
Hello. My name is Ginger Voight. I'm an optioned screenwriter and published author with nearly 30 titles. I began writing in the sixth grade and never stopped, focusing on romantic sagas with a sociological bent. My goal is to make writing my sole career, to give it the attention it deserves. Not many people understand the passion and drive it takes to make that happen, which is why I always love to find myself among like-minded individuals.
Hi, all. Glad to be here. I write in several genres and will post my books over the next day or so. One of my most recent is The CreateSpace Graphics Primer.
You can find me at:
TheLiteraryNet contacted me via e-mail and pulled me over here. Of course, I kicked and dug in my heels all the way. Believe that? I have a lake on Mars I'd like to sell you--cheap.
See you soon somewhere around the site …
