I'm Barb Zaneson, from Minnesota. I grew up in the 1980's, reading science fiction and fantasy and trying to write novels. After beginning several incomplete books, I took a long break from writing. Last year I read a lot of romance, paranormal books, and steampunk, and this year I started reading a lot of science fiction again. I started writing short stories in various genres, so I can gradually improve, and decide which genre is my favorite to write. Any comments and suggestions and criticism and advice are welcome. Thanks. (Also, I rarely check my messages, so don't be offended if I ignore your 'Hello'.)
