I work in PR and as a byproduct get to do quite a bit of editing/writing at work - but it's all nonfiction  articles/speeches/press releases and unfortunately my name doesn't get to byline the articles I write (oh, the joys of ghostwriting!). I absolutely adore my job - but I miss creative writing! Creative nonfiction was my forte back in my not-so-ancient college days, but it's not what I like to read. I'm using Wattpad to practice my fiction skillz. Which admittedly are lacking.

The way I write is that I publish first...edit later. Easier to get the plot out there and then go back and refine the language and other minutia.

Favorite genres are epic fantasy, PNR, and urban fantasy, but I'll read anything. I'm in search of my reader soulmate who is as diehard a fan of Ilona Andrews as I am.

So thanks a billion for turning us on to Ilona Andrews.  Just finished Magic Bites - Kate Daniels #1 and it was truly awesome.  I will be reading through the entire series without fail.

Equally good is the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs:  werewolves and vampires and fae, oh, my!

I don't want to say which I think is better because when I'm reading one, I'm enthralled -- likewise when reading the other.

We all think you're an amazing writer or we wouldn't be on this board encouraging you to keep on writing! I love Paladin so much. I read it almost a year ago, yet it is one of those stories that you always remember and wonder about when the next ones coming out. I hope that as you continue writing, someone will notice your mad skills and publish you! In the meantime, keep up your fantastic writing!:):):)
