About My Library
I have a large and eclectic library. Please take a look. I am sure you will find something to appreciate and enjoy. I have posted a few reviews, please let me know what you think of them. Happy hunting!
About Me
I am the managing editor at Lone Star Literary Life, a media website reporting on all things bookish in Texas; freelance manuscript editor; and blogger at www.TexasBookLover.com, which was just named a Top 50 Texas Blog; a moderator for the Texas Book Festival, Permian Basin Writers Workshop, and the Lubbock Book Festival; and a panelist at Books in the Basin. Previously, I was an award-winning editor at The Texas Spur, the weekly newspaper of record for Dickens and Kent counties since 1909;

My reviews appear or are forthcoming in Foreword Reviews, Kirkus Reviews, The Rumpus, BookSlut, [PANK] Magazine, Pleiades Magazine, South85 Journal, The Review Review, Concho River Review, Monkeybicycle, Mosaic Literary Magazine, World Literature Today, Rain Taxi, The Collagist, High Country News, and Atticus Review.

I am a member of the National Book Critics Circle, Writers' League of Texas, PEN America, and the Texas Press Association. You can find me on the web at www.TexasBookLover.com, on Facebook as Texasbooklover, and on Twitter @txbooklover.
