OK, now that the greeting is out of the way let me introduce myself. I'm an OAP (old aged pensioner) residing slothfully in the Northern Coromandel of New Zealand.  I live in a tiny village of 11 houses, a shop and a hall a stone's throw from the sea.

I'm a writer and poet, published here in NZ and also in many magazines and anthologies internationally, both electronic and print.

I am not, however, famous or rich.

And let me be quite clear: I'm no geek. I'm an over-enthuiastic ameteur who has a number of computer skills but without knowing how anything works. I'm on the Internet a lot as I'm in a number of online writer's groups, and I also administer a forum for young writers which is Canada-based.

So... if anyone has any questions I'm happy to answer them. I have no qualms about exposing myself (literarily) although I'm not likely to tell you if I'm a serial killer...

Cheers,

cooldragon

If I expose myself from this distance it's not likely to embarrass either of us... and anyway, the frost is descending.
