About meThe basics: Happily married for 33 years, two wonderful young adult sons. Reading :I've always loved to read - and I'll read the back of a cereal box if it comes to that! I've read a lot mysteries over the years -but a couple of years ago, one of my son's took a CanLit Course at UBC - and since the books were around the house , I read all of them -and thus my love of CanLit began. Over the past couple of years, my taste in reading has really changed towards Canlit and more literary books. Favourites for me lately have been the Kitchen House, The Book of Negroes, The Jade Peony, Cutting for Stone -but I confess - I still like a good mystery every now and then.

I love a good browse in a bookstore, chocolate and a nice cup of tea!
