About meI am a lifelong, voracious reader and my favorite novels are mysteries and thrillers In the last few years I have explored more historical fiction and although it will never surpass my love of mysteries I continue to enjoy each new discovery. As part of my favorite reading hours, I have enjoyed helping multiple authors as a beta reader and have been touched by acknowledgements and/or dedications.

My professional training and experience includes work as a children's librarian (public schools in PA and TX), assistant director/children's librarian of a public library in a county seat (PA), an editor at The H.W. Wilson Company (NY), and as a legal secretary and paralegal in family law.

I love cats and kittens. Holly, our little Maine Coon/Tabby rescue of December 2018 is now 2 years old and my husband and I delight in watching her daily explorations, and antics.

Interests: Reading, Reading, Reading, Flower Gardening, Reading, Reading, Travel, Reading. :)

About my libraryI love to read fiction!
