Welcome to YWO.
I write fiction, never done nonfiction, so I don't think I'd be any help with that. Do capitalize you "i"s, though, and feel free to PM me for anything.

Hallo Danny, are you Irish?

If so, that's the second Irish person I've met online today.

Welcome to YWO!

What genre are you aiming at in fiction and what non-fiction stuff did you write about?

Hello Lykaios

I was actually born in England but all my family are from Ireland.

I have recently been given a publishers contract for a book im writing on the Grosvenor family, but Im nearing the end of the book and I find myself wanting to write adventure/fantasy for teenage readers.

What do you write? Read?

Danny

I like reading books with alot of wit involved, espeacially if the writer uses alot of sarcasm.

I was practically brought up on sarcasm what with my dad and aunty using that as their day to day vocabulary.

I write children's fantasy/historical/random stories or things that are meant to be novels but never get finished.

I was born in N. Ireland but live in England, some of my family come from there though.
