When I went into the University I read tons of hardboiled and noir books and fell in love with the genre but after I left I had no time to read and I miss reading. I decided to come back after picking up several of Mario Puzo's books and I found my copy of The Maltese Falcon and wow was I surprised that I remembered I had these.
I used to write mini stories when I was in high school and never dreamt of becoming a writer. However, I did wrote a short story that's on Amazon but I'm pretty disappointed in myself because I rushed it and I'm hoping to improve on my writing.
I joined this site years ago but I never made an effort to actually meet some of you and learn new authors/stories. I'm here for tips, to make friends, and to enjoy reading mysteries/crime fiction again.
