So I guess it's my turn for an introduction. I'm Mandy, the group's Arkansas livin' redneck. I've been a slinger for a year, a wonderful year in which I have learned so much from these ladies! Started writing as a kid in school and worked on stories as a teenager. Then, well you know how life gets in the way and I lost my way (in writing). It took some time but I came back and am now working on a MG fantasy. No title yet though Tree Talker is working in the Interim (Hence my pic, birch trees.) That's my writing life. For my "pay the bills" life, I work for a local non-profit cancer support agency, which is very rewarding but busy. The hubby and I are over run with critters, a dog and three cats. I am offically introduced. Welcome to blog and hope ya return soon!
