About meI must have come out of the womb with a firm grip on a writing instrument and sheaf of paper because I have been writing ever since I could, reading as much as I could take out of the library (8 books each week since I got my first library card at age 6) which has led to thinking up a storm and broadening my intellect beyond the breaking point (where one considers that one knows too much about nonsense and not enough useful information - a saracstic thanks to the deline of original thought due to the demise of great literature).

I am an extrovert with a loud voice, strong resolve, forthcoming opinions and I do not suffer fools lightly.

At my core, I am an introvert who is solemn, quiet, peaceful, introspective, romantic, sweet, kind, understanding and compassionate.

I can be a hermit and enjoy it very much. I have someone in my life who is a hermit too. One person can be a hermit, but what are 2 hermits? Now that's some philosophical math!

I currently work at a the University of Toronto Press, Journals Division and absolutely love it! I am involved in the dissemination of literature and feel that I am making a contribution which helps me sleep at night and feel that I'm using my time wisely instead of wasting it by working a job I hate to buy shit I don't need. Plus, I get a 40% discount at the university bookstore. Yeahhh!

About my libraryI do not give away or sell my books, I just buy more shelves and make more space.

My library consists of school books, the classics, feminist literature, poetry, pop culture, and political interests.

I dream of nothing more than having a floor-to-ceiling library complete with a rolling ladder to climb all the way to the top and fling myself gleefully from side to side...then after the novelty wears, it'll just be useful and a conversation piece.

I also dream of a day when I have enough money to walk into a bookstore and buy any and every book that strikes my fancy. Siiiiigh.
