About My Library
I love escapist fiction - detective stories and mysteries, fantasy, historical romances, science fiction, and legal thrillers.
About Me
After spending years as a corporate lawyer in a big law firm in NYC, I'm looking into starting my own practice. I have time to explore NYC, learn to cook and eat healthier, exercise, garden (on my Brooklyn balcony), and read more. My interests are very broad from cooking and gardening to real estate, estate planning, tax law, investing and law to escapist fiction of all types to nonfiction and memoirs.

I'm an Amazon Vine reviewer and had participated as a First Look Reader at Barnes and Noble. I also post my reviews on Good Reads and on my blog, Starting Fresh (www.startingfreshnyc.com)
