About meI have three published books, the most recent is The Saint and the Fasting Girl which is a work of historical fiction set in the Tudor period. For more information about the book, and to watch a video interview see

About my libraryThough these are only about half my books, I think these are the half I most enjoy and are the most important to me either in terms of what I enjoy reading or what I use for reference. My categories are a bit marshy. Some books submit to a single tag, but I find most of my books spill out across the playground or refuse to be tagged at all. As to my ratings, how many stars a book gets has no loftier basis than that I liked some of them more than others. Other librarians, no doubt, will shudder that I ranked Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code (with two stars) above Ezra Pound. (Hee hee!) I never liked Ezra Pound.

Thanks for stopping by! If you like, leave a comment :)
