About meI am a native of Grand Rapids, MI living in Roanoke, VA.

I love all sorts of books, but historical fiction has become a recent favorite. I also enjoy reading books by new authors. I don't seem to have the dedication or discipline to write myself, so I live vicariously through those my age who do.

When I'm not reading I work as a business analyst/Agile project manager and am currently working my way toward a career in web development. I am married and have two daughters - Emma (11) and Allison (9). We adopted Emma and then, after losing a lot of weight, I became pregnant with Allison. Ally was born a scant 25 minutes before Emma's 2nd birthday.

About my libraryI have always loved to read AND own books. Ever since I've been old enough to earn money I've been buying books. I cannot not buy books. I've tried the whole library thing, but the fines escalate to the cost of buying the book in the first place. HA!
