About My Library
I read primarily mystery and crime fiction, usually on the hardboiled, grittier side. I also enjoy taking a break from mysteries now and then, and reading histories or biographies. However, if I should be so foolish as to not have a book near by, I have also been known to read cereal boxes, warranty notices, and computer software or website terms of usage. Needless to say, I always try to keep a book nearby, on paper or audio.
About Me

I enjoy sports (Hooray for the Black and Gold - Steelers, Pirates and Pens), reading and gardening. I read mysteries primarily, although recently have expanded to a broader range, including more nonfiction. I used to write book reviews (primarily audio reviews) for Mystery News and for Deadly Pleasures Mystery Magazine. Now I post an occasional review on my blog: mugsysmusings.blogspot.com.

I retired from a second career in financial services in September 2020, so now read a bunch more, while working on lowering my golf handicap and learning Italian.
Love living around the Chesapeake Bay.
