About meA lifelong booklover - hey my Mom was a librarian! - I was the marketing director for the Harry W. Schwartz Bookshops in Milwaukee for 20 years before they closed in 2009. There I had the good fortune to meet many lovely writers and readers.

Now I do marketing for a nature center.

But as I like to say: You can take the girl out of the bookstore, but not the bookseller out of the girl. That is what I love so much about LT - sharing good books and finding out about so many more!

Here is my 2015 thread:
