About meI have been reading since I was 4 and consider the gift of reading the greatest thing I have ever been given by my mother. Co-wrote the Images of America book "Trenton." Revolutionary War reenactor. Knitting and reading addict. Cannot go to sleep at night without reading. Cannot go anywhere without something to knit and a book to read.
