This is the part where I tell you that I'm an author of a romance novel called Death of a Bachelor, coming from NineStar Press in October 2018.

Or I should, anyway. Really, I am a human who yells at things on the internet. I assume you are also a person who yells at things on the internet. If not, what are you doing with your life?

No, really, I'm asking. If I had a legitimate career path and not just lots of emotions about fictional characters, we wouldn't be having this conversation.

That's not the point. This is an about page, so here are some things about me. I've been an editor and a writing consultant in different forms for the past eight years, ever since I started college and found out people would actually pay me money to underline things and say FIX THIS. I have done everything from tutoring English 101 to editing full length romance novels.  In terms of things people don't pay me money for, I write and draw. That should be pretty obvious by now.

If you want to get in touch with me, you can like my Facebook page or follow me on Twitter, or you can email me at maryannehinklethewriter@gmail.com.

I do have other social media things, but I am shy and awkward. You can find me if you look, but I'll probably just run away in terror.
