"From the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh" Since I am not published, I guess that makes me a novice. However, I have been writing for many years. I kinda took up writing novels as a hobby in high school, more than ten years ago. I'm 30 and I joined looking for a community where I can find like minded writers who write for the sheer joy and rush of creating something new. I like to believe I'm something of an intellectual with my degrees and education( thus the handle Deep V), but I really only write urban suspense/ action/ romance/ paranormal stories and some varied poetry. I'm a So Cal girl, thus a HUGE Lakers fan. I attempt to slip my fanship into my stories whenever possible, lol. That's me in a nutshell!
