My name's Damien. I'm a writer and a photographer. How I started writing is still kind of a mystery to me. I dreamt of being a fantasy writer in my youth and wrote fantasy throughout my teens but I gave up the dream in my early twenties. At 33, I started writing again. Now three years later, I've written some short stories, novelettes and a novella - all horror. I recently started working with an editor and she has talked me into expanded the novella into a full length novel as well as helping me with another novel I currently have in the works.
I just heard about this site thanks to Iain Rob Wright, so I thought I'd just jump in and say hello.
Hey Damien - cheers for dropping in and joining the forum.
It's quite heartwarming to hear about people who start writing to follow their dream - and with such a drive and passion behind the work - it more often than not really works out. I'm really looking forward to seeing your name cropping up across Amazon, Goodreads and various forums etc over the next few years.
So,what is it you're writing? Fantasy stuff? Fancy throwing a synopsis or two on here?
Anyway, good to have you on the forum mate. Don't be a stranger.
