About meThirty-something with a degree in Classical Languages and Literatures (a Hellenist by inclination); a subsequent degree in English Literature is in progress. Strong interest in medicine, especially genetics and genealogy, astrobiology, astrophysics, reproductive endocrinology, and public health. I also have interest in voice, art history, travel narratives, and science fiction by women. I enjoy writing, but have not the temerity to do so professionally. I so admire authors for their dedication and perseverance.

Nothing is more frustrating than reading something with glaring typographical and grammatical errors. NOTHING.

About my libraryVery eclectic, encompassing a variety of genres. I read mostly fiction with a mystery/thriller bent and prefer stories with female protagonists. I also greatly enjoy historical fiction, literary criticism (but no Freud, thank you), biography, and memoir. There is a fair amount of spiritualism and supernatural phenomena in my library, topics which frequently inform both my fiction and non-fiction reading, although I consider myself agnostic bordering on atheist.
