Well, what to say? I’ve been in Forward Motion since Dec 6th 2005 – an oldie. Zette kindly made me a Moderator a while back and I look after the following forums
And my ‘Baby’
Psst, don’t forget to go register to be a part of Roving Crits here
I write a multitude of genres – Horror and Dark (duh), Romance/Erotica, Fanatsy, Contemporary, Steampunk (I think that’s all) – and like to mix them up.
I’m a published author; my erotica has been with a couple of publishers; and I actively follow the traditional publishing route – real life being what it is I don’t have the time to devote to self publishing, although I know it is something I will do, as well as develop my own website, as a way of increasing my readership.
I’m a programmer and a teacher – so forgive me if my posts and crits sound like lectures, I don’t mean them to be but I can’t help but teach. I have an active family of grown boys, a dog (who thinks she’s a person) and a cat (who knows we are her slaves). I scrapbook, take photos, garden, sew, and keep fit through running, cycling and gym things. And I get attacked by plot bunnies any time of the day or night.
Oh and I live in Australia. So I live in your future – most of you anyway.
Any questions, please ask. and go visit my forums. Love to have a discussion with you on anything.October 20, 2012 at 4:14 pm #207154MaripatParticipant
Thanks, Cat, for introducing yourself! And, for all the good things you do about the site.

About time we saw an introduction from you!
It’s always nice to talk to you in chat, and thank you for all the crits you do on the main crit board here. I’m sure I’m not the only one who really appreciates it.

Thanks. without FM I wouldn’t have gotten published, hell I’m not even sure I would have continued writing (I started writing fiction Jun 2005). This place has given me the learning I needed, the constructive criticism I needed and still do, the encouragment – still need that too – and most importantly some lovely people I am proud to call friends.
I cannot help but give what little I can back.October 20, 2012 at 10:59 pm #207255
My pleasure, only trying to repay the debt I have to those that critted me.
