Guilty as charged, m'lud.  I'm unpublished as yet, but I've completed the
first draft of one novel, have a second first draft about three-quarters
done, and am about two-thirds of the way through the first draft of a third
(which is the one I'm actively working on at the moment).  I've also written
a few short stories, two of which are out in slush-piles at the moment.  A
third got rejected the other day, and will be sent out again this evening.

And on the side, I'm Fantasy Co-Editor of a spec-fic webzine,

I write fantasy, by the way, mostly of the urban variety; my novels are all
set in modern Dublin (well, they say you should write what you know!).

Like Ros, I'm a member of the Del Rey sponsored On-Line Writing Workshop,
where a dedicated sub-group is picking holes in my current novel. :-)

Until the sky falls on our heads...
