I live in London, England with husband and two children. I used to be a lawyer in New York City, then a quasi-banker in Hong Kong. I started writing fiction in 2004. I've always been an avid reader. I'm originally from Malaysia.
I joined at the invite of Scott Garson, a writer and editor I respect for his literary merits.
I write because I have to, otherwise I become constipated.

Hi Elaine--just wishing you a happy productive spring to come.
Thanks for adding me to your list of contacts. I have added you to mine as well. Look forward to reading more of your work.
Thanks for the kind words, Elaine. Nice to meet you here. I'll look forward to checking out your work.
Hello Corey. A bit, so I'm trying to get some words out.
I hope you are writing and aren't constipated at the moment.
hey Elaine--your story (super-fantastic!) is just up @ Wigleaf.
(don't know if that link will work.... we'll see...)
Hi Meg, I'm still feeling my way around here. Great to see you too.
Hi Elaine! Great to see you here!
