I have a novel stored away, but have been working on flash fiction and short stories for a couple of years now. Most of my stories are about southern characters. I worked at a local welfare agency, the school system, and a local technical school my working career and write mostly the types of stories you'd expect from the individuals and families from those experiences.

Hi Gail.. I published my first novel, Even in Darkness a year ago April, and am now trying to finish the first draft of my second book. I also love short fiction- have won a flash fiction and a short story contest, and try to keep up with blogging etc. What do you hope to get from this group?  You can learn more about my work at my website! Thanks for prompting this thread!

Hi Becky, your note showed up in my email but I couldn't find it in this thread. Wondering what kind of sharing you have in mind? Do members offer one another critiques? I'm still very new and open to everything but I'm especially interested in exchanging feedback.

Hi Barbara…well, at least there's two of us! You are the first person I've "met" on She Writes. Wondering what you're working on writing-wise? I have a play that is nearly done and a collection of short stories/essays I'm in the middle of. I also teach writing at the Community College of Vermont.

I love reading and writing short stories especially ones that show the best in people. 

Check out my website for examples of my writing.

My new short story, "Huntin'", a paranormal action thriller comes out today. I actually started writing this twenty years ago. I must admit thise version is a lot better than the original.
