About meMother of two, wife of one.

About my librarySome people see my bookshelves and become frightened. Please do not despair. I read a variety of genres - and by variety, I mean that I'll pretty much try anything at least once.

Many reviews posted are from my website,, which specifically state "Reviewed by ________ for"

Everything else - which includes most of the (sometimes) strange stuff, are titles I read all by my lonesome, so they should not reflect negatively on the volunteer reviewers who work for the TRT site! =)

I have lots of reading loves: zombies; weird horror; gay and lesbian; supernatural; Star Trek; urban fantasy; inspirational/Christian fiction; Buffy the Vampire Slayer; true crime; cozy mysteries; slash-and-dash, slice-and-dice thrillers; non-fiction about anything that sounds interesting; horror; YA and teen; books dealing with the Jehovah's Witnesses religion; stories that deal with 9/11; books about dogs/cats/armadillos (okay, not really armadillos - yet!).

Basically, if it's a book, and it sounds rather appealing, I'll read it (or at least attempt to). No, I don't always finish a book I start, but I'll always give it the ole college try. I don't read much fantasy/sci-fi/paranormal, unless it's contemporary, and the one genre I don't read (wow, hard to believe, isn't it?) is historical fiction.

That's it in a nutshell. I try to write unbiased reviews that honestly tell how I feel about a book, without being a vampire slayer to some poor author's baby.

If you ever need to get in touch (specifically if you want to recommend more books I should read!), it's easiest to reach me at
