About meAn office manager with a love of books. I read quite a bit and am always picking up new stories and novels, even though my "must read" stack continues to grow larger and larger. I'm a fan of world literature (Japanese, Spanish), horror/ghost stories, LGBT literature and sometimes the hardcore stuff that we were supposed to read in college. Some of my stories have recently appeared in: "First Time Dead 2", "Fear, Volume 1", "Before Plan 9: Plans 1-8 from Outer Space", "Queer Fish Volume 2", and "Monster Gallery".

About my libraryI tend to read quite a bit of world as well as LGBT literature so my shelves are filled with the likes of John Rechy, Yukio Mishima, Phil Rickman, and J. M. Coetzee, to name just a few. I'm also a fan of horror novels -- specifically ghost stories--so I own volumes of Algernon Blackwood, Ambrose Bierce, Stephen King, Shirley Jackson and many others. I also like the hardcore lit.: Dante's "The Divine Comedy," Bocaccio's "The Decameron," and so on.
