Ann Andrews (annliviandrews) | 687 comments Mod
Due to our previous introductions thread being over 60 pages long and beginning to resemble the wild west of the internet, we have decided to lock it and start a new, fresh and clean introductions thread.

We’re going to make this simple and straightforward. In your introductory post, please include:

1. Your Name (Pseudonym or Real Name or Both)
2. Your Preferred Writing and Reading Genre
3. Your Most Recently Released Book (with Goodreads link if you like) if you have one
4. One Interesting Fact About You

Anything OTHER than this will result in your post being deleted. This is not a thread for broad and general discussions. We have plenty of other threads for that. This is simply to introduce yourself to the group. :)

Of course, nobody told my family, and when I started having problems, I was told that it was "all my imagination." I wrote Memoirs with the hope of reaching other children and adults who lived through similar experiences and were told, as I was, that they were imagining things or were crazy for talking about it.
