Hi there all, my name is Fineous, and I am currently residing just outside of San Francisco, California.

I have been a fan of Simon R. Green since I picked up Blue Moon Rising in the early 90's, and have been a fan of SciFi and Fantasy in general ever since I could read.

I have had a rather odd life, due to a father who worked for an oil company, so I moved around a lot as a child. I was born in England (Guildford to be exact) and grew up in Weybridge. But my father's job took me to Tunisia in North Africa, and Spain, each for a couple of years. I've heard the Lemur cries in the forests of Madagascar, and been on Safari in Kenya. I've been Skiing in the Alps in Austria and Switzerland, and been paddled along the canals of Venice. Drunk wine at French Vineyards, and been water-skiing in the Baltic off the Swedish coast. And that was all before I was 20!

Then I went to College in the US, got a degree in Philosophy, and so that naturally led to a life working in retail. :lol:

I have worked in bookstores my whole life. I have always loved the job, and ended up managing a Borders bookstore for about 10 years, until Borders went belly up due to lousy management. Now I am currently out of work, and debating whether or not I should actually try to write one of the stories I have had up in my head for the last couple of decades.

I have recently spent far too much time online playing around with the internet, and that naturally led me here.

Hi Fineous

Welcome to the SRG Board.

If you hang around I'm sure there'll be cookies, however if you hang around too long I'm sure I'll have eaten them :D

Arrgh, incipient cookie thieving!

*Furtively checks cookie jar, then sinks to knees in despair, doing best Charlton Heston impression*

You did it, you really did it, you MANIACS!

*Covers eyes and weeps*

*Then finds last cookie in jar*

Oh, never mind.

*wanders off eating cookie*

This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

I recommend you give writing that story a shot, you cant finish the book if you don't start. But from what I read, you need to have thick skin and not be afraid of rejection.

Hello and welcome! Don't hesitate and try to write, but then give your story some times and reread it before trying to publish. :?
