About meI am married, retired and living in Middle Tennessee with 1 demanding dog. In addition to reading I follow the stock market, enjoy cycling, hiking, sampling single malts and savoring gourmet teas.

About my libraryWhy, do I have so many books? In my teens, long before the internet and easy computer access, I fantasized that I would become a writer and need books as research tools. Then I discovered art. Now, I just sit amongst my books waiting for some form of osmosis.
