About meI'm a busy mom who reads as a form of therapy. I have three teenagers at home and 2 cats. I met my husband at Brigham Young University. We've been married for 20 years.

I learned to read when I was in a car accident as a 4 year old. I was stuck in a body cast with nothing to do. So I watched Sesame Street, and somehow, those letters all turned in to words. I've had a book on hand ever since. (usually more than one!)

Besides reading, I like to watch mysteries on TV, as well as cooking shows, Nature, and science shows. I also like to scrapbook when I have time and listen to music. I'm really interested in alternative health and my religious faith. But most of my time is spent keeping up with my busy kids, especially now that homework season has started up again.

So Hello already!

About my libraryI love mysteries! My favorites are cozies, Golden Age, and English police books. I love funny mysteries, but anything too cute or full of quirky characters turns me off.

I also enjoy non-fiction books, although I get most of these from the library. I like science, cookbooks, history, natural or alternative healing.

I'm a big Harry Potter fan, but I love lots of different fantasy books. I'm not as into science fiction, but have enjoyed a few titles here and there. I'm a big fan of several fantasy writers and I'm always looking for another good series.

And I still read picture books!

Hope that tells you something about me. I'm a fast reader, but I love to reread my books. So I keep all my favorites. Any books I wasn't completely in love with will wind up being donated. So my ratings are skewed, since I only keep the books I loved. You can also find me on Good Reads.
