About My Library
This is really our library -- we met as English majors at Hobart and William Smith -- the books have travelled with us for over 50 years from Geneva to Baltimore to Cleveland to NYC to Florida. Lots of fiction and poetry and drama. And, of course, Floridiana.

The authors named favorites are those who were important to me at one point or another in my life.

About Me
I'm a retired community college professor (by training a medievalist; by practice a generalist and feminist: literature and humanities). My husband is a retired repertory actor. We're transplanted Floridians, but we've been here for 40 years, and our children were raised here. I became passionate about Florida when I started putting together an anthology of Florida poetry -- traveled around the state, learned the history, and came to savor the fragrances, bird song, winds rustling through the palms, and subtle and not-so-subtle seasonal changes. As someone who grew up in western NYS where winter lasts from Halloween until past Easter, I relish Florida weather -- despite the hurricanes.
