About meI'm a collector and writer in Phoenix. I have no idea how many years I've been hoarding books, but at last count I had over 3000 books. I'm an Anglophile and about a third of my books are British novels. I also love Agatha Christie mysteries and I'm a member of a Sherlock Holmes club.
In non-fiction, I have a collection of books on pirates, shipwrecks, the sea and world travel. In art, I lean towards surrealism, pop art and the Renaissance, especially Botticelli and Albrecht Durer.
I'd love to hear from fans of the Ramones or British actors such as John Castle, Robert Shaw, Oliver Reed, James Laurenson, Kenneth Haigh and Alan Bates and The Professionals.

About my libraryI'm a former make-up artist, but I have also been the editor of an on-line literary site, a late-night deejay and ran a dessert business. I spend time cooking and in Vegas. I also read a whole lotta magazines about cooking, travel and fashion.
