About meI can think of nothing more enjoyable than getting lost in a good book. My love of reading began as a child when I frequented the local public library and has continued to be one of my favorite pastimes. I am a retired educator and business professional and a writer by avocation. In this current chapter of my life, I am also a student, returning to the classroom to learn all the wonderful subjects that were put on the back burner while I was employed. Fortunately this interest in reading and knowledge is shared by my husband so we enjoy our golden years together! I have three adult children and two grandchildren.

About my libraryI tend to enjoy reading literary fiction and consider some of my favorite authors as my "good friends!" I also appreciate a well-written memoir, finding that we humans are not so unique after all...but share many of the same situations, emotions and longings. When I am researching subjects that I am studying, I also enjoy reading related non-fiction. I have not learned to appreciate science fiction and find I have little patience for a plot or characters that do not engage me in light literature. I still continue to get most of my books from the public library. But that does not prevent me from having stacks of books to-be-read and long wish-lists of titles to be sought out.
