Don't you know it! Although I'm told I have to stop now. I moved to California in August 2005, then moved to Louisiana in 2009. But I've got family here, and it's kinda hard to think about moving again when there's a 3 year old niece whose face just lights up when she sees you.


Thanks for the welcomes, all of you! And congrats on the baby, Cheryl! My mom's due date for me was March 26th, too. I waited a few days longer to make an appearance, though.

Anyway! I thought it was time and past time to start reconnecting with folks who actually know what I'm talking about when I refer to Pern. That requires heading to MoM - so here I am!
lol hello Anna by the way are over at StarRise Weyr for if you are and read GinnyStar or GinnyStar2 your see me.

Also my pen name is the same as here too, as at FF.net, till how I found my way to StarRise in the first plce.

Hi all, I figured it was time I registered over here as well as KT...I just needed a name I could live with long term and I hated my previous one...so now I am between on both forums.

I won't promise to post frequently as my rl is insanely busy but Anne's work (especially her world building) has been among my favorites since I was a small child...although actually particpating in fandom is a new experiance for me.

I love science fiction (hard, soft, even space opera), science fantasy (the catagory I place Pern in ), as well as fantasy, historical fiction, horror, suspense, and non-fiction. Anything else I will consider on recommendation.

What else would you like to know

Just saying hello to fellow fans

Hi
Just wanted to introduce myself as a new member of your forum.
I have been a fan of Anne's books since the mid 70s when a friend gave me two to read. I immediately went out and got the rest available at that time and never looked back.
I only found your forum when I was looking up Catalyst and the saw that a new one is on its way.
I have posted on Anne's Birthday thread.
Looking forward to reading through to see what is going on.

Jean aka jaydee

Wecome Jean aka jaydee, eann is the other Anne who co-wrote it, is a member here she is the one that gave me an extra copy of Catalyst in audio, and she and few others have a sub forum here too.

It at time hard for me to see print, so audio is one way I enjoy the books. Great to meet another member from the UK, we folks from all over the world here.

By the way one of our cats,.Smokey is say hi in cat way, using his tail to talk for he has a very soft meow, unless he realy wants something.

Default Should probably do the intro thing

Looks like I'm at risk of being classed as 'inactive' so I guess I should jump in. I hate introducing myself though.

Anyway, some of you may know me by username at least from other forums. I'm a fan of Anne's series, especially the Pern one, and role-play it. I'm usually busy with my own role-playing forum, but now and then I need advice on certain aspects of canon. That's when I come to places with Pernese experts, such as this forum!

Indeed! You'd be most welcome at my place if you're ever looking to write with role-players again. You were definitely a highlight of the place I jumped ship from.
