About meI'm a lifelong reading addict who spent most of my adult life working for newspapers, with a short foray into environmental conservation. I took a break from journalism and worked at the local college and public libraries but have recently returned and now cover the Keys for WLRN, South Florida's public radio station. I used to prefer my fiction on the realist side of the equation although I have lately fallen into a serious genre habit: historical fiction, historical crime (fiction and non), romance and some fantasy/paranormal/speculative/dystopia. I like narrative nonfiction, think we're in a golden age of great natural history writing for laypeople. I occasionally enjoy diving into a massive historical tome or biography. I keep thinking it's time for me to get over my obsession with the Tudors and their times but it keeps not happening. I live in Key West and I'm on the board of the Key West Literary Seminar.
About my libraryThis is a mix of books I own and have read, own and haven't read or have read but don't own. My rating system: * = I hated it. ** = Not worth the time. *** = Worth the time but not really worth going out of your way for. *** 1/2 = Perfectly enjoyable read. **** = Great read. ***** = I intend to own this book for the rest of my life and would try to save my copy if my house were on fire.
