About meI'm retired from all my paying jobs (for the time, at least), which included working as an RN in Labor & Delivery for 20 years. Instead of getting an advanced degree in nursing, I went back to school and received a BA & MA in literature--my always and first love. Then I taught writing at the university for awhile, and although I loved that job, I quit after about 5 years because it was too time-intensive and was eating me alive. I replaced that job with working on genealogy, which I hugely enjoy.
About my libraryMy favorite reads: biography, literary letter collections, cultural history, and fiction (including literature-type "good" fiction and also empty just-for-fun fiction), memoir, non-fiction.
