Hello all!
I'm Gabriella. I'm from Chicago. I write. :)
I just stumbled upon this lovely forum yesterday and have had the pleasure of looking around and getting to know it a bit.
You all seem like wonderful people and I imagine we will get along famously! Sharing our love of historical fiction and all. . .

Well, thats all I suppose.
Look forward to meeting you all!

Hi, Gabriella! I love Chicago--I grew up in Rockford, out to the northwest, and still have family all around the area. Welcome to the forum.

Hi and welcome. My mother's family was from Chicago and I probably have some loooooooooong lost cousins still living there. Haven't been there for a very long time.
