About meI studied archaeology in college and am currently working at the Discovery Channel. I love cemeteries and am a lapsed member of the Association for Gravestone Studies.
About my libraryI have a thing for darkly atmospheric books. Poe was my first love, and I followed the Gothic path to authors like the Brontes, Ann Radcliffe, Mary Shelley and Bram Stoker. I love 18th and 19th-century British lit as well as writings from Colonial America. A book's page texture and font are important to my initial enjoyment of a book (though of course the story is paramount), which is why I have so many Penguin books. I've recently begun reading French decadent literature (Huysmans is a must-read!). I find books on psychology, medicine, the occult and mild-altering substances fascinating. Archaeology has a respectable showing in my library, most especially books pertaining to American historical archaeology.
