About meHigh school English teacher.

About my libraryUntil the end of college, I thought buying books was stupid; that's what the library was for. I had to buy books for classes and loved owning them and after I found some good used bookstores (Daedalus on the downtown mall in Charlottesville and the friends of the library store in Orange), buying books became a bit of an addiction. I'm missing some of my favorite books, though, since I read library copies. I also have a whole mess of books I still haven't read yet (they're marked as such).

Noticed you liked As I Lay Dying, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also southern and a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Here's a link to a summary (and a sample chapter)in case you'd like to read more about the novel before you commit:
