I just joined today! Hoorah! Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a former current affairs journalist, currently a house husband (my wife's an NHS hospital doctor). I've been writing for a while and have had some near misses with agents, have almost secured an agent on a couple of occassions, but have never quite crossed the line. I have three different manuscripts in various states of readiness. I joined because as well as wanting to be part of a writing community, I feel that my creative writing needs more polish to finally snag an agent or publisher. I'm hoping that with the resources that a Jericho membership offers, plus the community of writers I'll be a part of, I just might finally achieve my dreams.
I write crime/thriller/speculative fiction.
I look forward to speaking with you all, getting to know you, exchanging work, etc.
EDITED: I should also say that I review books on my blog (http://thecrimenovelreader.blogspot.com) & post my reviews to Amazon, Goodreads & NB Magazine. Also, I'm on Twitter (@theJBP1) where I talk about books and writing & connect with writers & readers.
