Greetings All,
I've been looking for a place to help me hone my skills. I've been a voracious reader of Sci Fi and Fantasy fiction for decades. I was inspired by my daughter (who started writing short stories seven years ago at the age of six) to start getting all this stuff that's been floating around in my head down on paper/electrons. I just started seriously about a month ago and hope to develop my skills to the point where I would have the chops to get published. As a way of giving back to the community I can give advice or technical help to anyone who wants to write about small arms, weapons, armor or other military subjects in their stories. I spent 20 years in the Marine Corps. Mostly as an infantryman and later as a small arms R&D manager. I currently design firearms and other military hardware as a free lancer and have a broad knowledge of those topics that I would be more than happy to share with any members in need. Other than that I look forward to getting some of my work up for people to beat up... er I mean critique and interacting with folks who share a passion for story telling.
