About meI'm a writer and I live New York City. I write plays and musicals oh, and some TV. Okay, basically I'll write whatever they'll pay me to write.

About my libraryMy libriary reflects the books I've read, am going to read and would like to get to someday. (The someday books are tagged Reading List.) I tend not to hold on to fiction because I don't have the space and only keep non-fiction if think I may use it for a project. I tend to get as many books as possible from the New York Public Library (nypl). I have TheThing great for tracking the information. I don't have all my books entered, but unless there is an unread or reading list tag on the book, I've read it. I'm trying to write more reviews, but it's slow going.

Was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Saw you liked Paris Trout, and thought you might like my novel since it's also southern and a bit dark (in the same vein as Paris Trout). I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like. Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:


The Kite Runner is a very good book. The writer is an excellent storyteller and good writer. I'm in a phase right of reading books set in other parts of the world not written by Americans.
I haven't really used the site enough to rate it, and I haven't contributed much either by reviewing books etc. But it's a cool idea, so far so good.
yeah, I haven't figured out what the deal is with the watchlist either... Do let me know if you find out, would you?
Thanks for your comment. See the Radio 3 Group page for information about King Lear. You should be able to "listen again" if you catch it before Sunday. See the group page for details.
thanks for the comment. I try to keep my reviews fair (and hopefully in some cases fun).
Good luck with the can be a hard slog, but I love being able to go back and see what I thought of a book (saves me from rereading the bad ones).
