About meI'm a recovering college English instructor and the executive director of a small-town non-profit that provides financial support for low-income families. I also write the library column for the local paper. From time to time, my "reviews" here may simply be a link to the newspaper website.
About my libraryMy leisure reading of choice is mystery and quiet horror, especially ghost stories. I also have a hefty quantity of textbooks and literary analysis from my teaching days. I dabble in comparative religion and mythology, so you'll see some of that. I'm also a sucker for reading lists, so you'll often see tags of mine that refer to some list I'm trying to read my way through (ML top 100, for instance). You'll also sometimes see the tag "passing notes" which is the name of my column and means I read and reviewed it for the paper.
