About meI have a master's degree in Astronomy (University of Maryland), and I work for the Hubble Space Telescope.

I love cats, and I currently have 2, Quigley and Illyria. My husband is Kyle Vick, who got his Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of Maryland, and who teaches Psychology at Shawnee State University.

I also collect stuffed animals (plush), realistic species not just toys, and I have over 900, representing about 700 or so different species. Wish there was a PlushThing!

About my libraryMostly fantasy, (especially dragons and vampires) also science, (astronomy, physics, math, animals etc.), history, historical fiction and other.

Includes most of my favorite children's books. The collection "My Childhood" contains the books I read or owned as a child, (1973-1991) to separate them from the children's book's I have since acquired.

Most of the Philosophy and Neuroscience books are Kyle's.

See the photos of the fantasy/fiction section of my library in my member gallery!

While I don't own every book in my catalog, I do own every book in my "My Library" collection. (As well as technically the omnibus parts and the Great books since these are just subworks in books I own).
