About meRetired forensic chemist and crime scene analyst, also worked for 20 years as a part-time sheriff's deputy. Married with two grown daughters and six grandchildren. Trying to catch up on decades of lost literary reading. I am a coffee 'snob' and roast my own exotic coffee beans. I'm also an amateur photographer and a Missouri Master Naturalist.

About my libraryI read all genres with few exceptions. Most of my 'to-read' list comes from book discussion group listings, objective reviews and personal friends. I am a member of the Joplin Library book discussion group and the Neosho/Newton County Library discussion group and a member of the local library board. With a few exceptions, I tend to avoid requesting books in a series unless they are effectively 'stand alone.' I just began entering books into LT in 2011, so the listed books are not many. I am also active on Goodreads with over 210 reviews and have many more books entered there, having joined them earlier in 2010.

Hi, thanks so much for your reply and comment. I think that in itself is an excellent question which we will try to put to Per Petterson during the programme. Please could we have your name and location so that we can include these on air? If you would prefer, send these via email to my BBC email address:

Many thanks,

Hi there, I saw that you wrote a review of Per Petterson's novel Out Stealing Horses. I work at the BBC World Service and in May this year we will be interviewing him about this book for the World Book Club programme. We would like to include questions from readers around the world. Do you have a question you would like to ask him? If so please either reply here or email me at Please include your name and where you're from. Many thanks, Jennifer
