About meI've been an avid reader since I can remember. My taste in books is fairly eclectic. I do have a soft spot for magical realism. Lately, due to a lack of time, I've been reading lighter stuff but I hope to be able to go back and tackle all the classics at some point in the near future. Currently I work in corporate America as a writer/editor.

About my libraryI love the public library so I don't own many of the books I have listed. Going through other people's catalogs has made my "want to read" list long enough to keep me busy for a good while.

The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test up close, in the terrain of Stone's Prime Green memoir of the sixties. My first person nonfiction, novel:

Reviewed often on LT, as well as amazon, B&N, etc. Alas, you won't find it at the library, only on the Internet, for a price.
You Are More!

You are more than you pretend to be
You are more than what most eyes can see
You are more than all your history
Look inside and you will find
There's glory in your mind
Come be the kind of person you would be....

You are more than what your leaders say
You are more than how you earn your pay
You are more than what you seem today
So drop that loser's mask
You're equal to the task
The question you should ask is who you are....

You are more than what the preachers shout
You are more, come let your spirit out
You are more, your soul shall have no doubt
Arise, become awake
With every breath you take
The god within will ache to be....

You are more than some statistic chart
You are more than the sum of all your parts
You are more inside your heart of hearts
You know that it is true
This being that is you
Has miracles to do

Jean Houston and Howard Jerome

You Are More, can be found in Jean Houston's book "A Passion for the Possible."
Noticed that you liked The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here (as well as on a few other book-related sites). I thought you might like my novel since it's been compared to that novel by a number of reviewers. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like. Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:


I like magical realism too! Have you read Garden Spells by Sara Addison Allen. Its new, still in hardback, but good. Also Graham Joyce's Dark Sister is good too.
Happy Reading,
Hi, I notice that we have a lot of titles in sounds like you're busy, but would you like to keep in touch? Check out my profile and let me know!
