    Hello from a new member

    Hello

    I've just joined the community so, first stop, introductory thread! My name's Penny, by day I am a teacher and by night an avid bookworm. I also write poetry, and have recently started dabbling in short stories as well. In terms of genre, I particularly enjoy thriller/suspense/crime, but also the odd romance as well.

    Anyway, very happy to be part of the forum...see you around!

    Hello my fellow initiate! I'm not sure if I can officially 'welcome' you since you were here first. Instead I'll just say, I'm glad that you joined up and hope to see you around.

    Welcome! I admire you already, since poetry and teaching are both things that I have a lot of difficulty with and therefore a lot of respect for. I also enjoy a good thriller so I will keep an eye out for your writing when you post it.
