Hi, my name is Alex and I'm a writer. I tried for years to quit writing, but I was unsuccessful enough that I ended up with a finished manuscript, a query letter and a synopsis. I think I'm doomed to stick to it. My muse just has that certain something which gets me before the screen every time. I'm a Poland-born German who studied history in Dundee, Scotland. My gateway-books were Roger Zelazny's Amber and Frank Herbert's Dune. I have a love-hate relationship with hard SF and a drama-ridden romance with Fantasy. My debut is an adult SF novel about a female transgenic supercomputer living in a world which is best described as Alastair Reynolds meets Apocalypse Now. I'm looking forward to polish my query here and maybe help another fellow traveler on the way.
Hello! My name is Ellie and I write mainly historical fiction. I am currently working on preparing my YA novel, STELLINA, for querying! It's already gone through several drafts and received lots of helpful feedback, so now I am mainly focusing on polishing my query letter and synopsis and building up my platform in hopes of querying soon. Outside of writing, I am a musician and play the violin and piano, both of which greatly influence my writing. I love traveling and baking as well, and of course cozying up with a favorite book. I look forward to getting to know others and expanding my writing skills by reading and critiquing others' query letters and such!
