About meI'm an English teacher, which I suppose isn't unique around here. I started teaching in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, and for the last dozen years I've been overseas, teaching at international schools in the Middle East, Europe, South America, and Asia.

About my libraryI only listed on LT books I have on my shelves now, in case someone like Katherine wants to borrow one.

Some favorites, in no particular order: Kurt Vonnegut, Minette Walters, James Ellroy, Barbara Vine/Ruth Rendell, Raymond Chandler, James Jones, The Beach, John LeCarre, John D. MacDonald, Rupert Thomson, Ambrose Bierce, Anne Tyler, Iain Banks, The Deptford Trilogy, E.L. Doctorow, The Roth Trilogy, Cormac McCarthy, Jonathan Carroll, Oscar Wilde, Carl Hiaasen, Ross Thomas, Joyce Carol Oates, The Line of Beauty, Elmore Leonard, Jim Thompson, lots of John Irving, The Speed Queen, Ian McEwan, some Michael Dibdin, Chuck Palahniuk, Toni Morrison, Richard Price, some essays by James Baldwin, Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow, Candide, Richard Dooling, William Gibson, The Corrections, Peter Carey, James Sallis, Richard Powers, Cryptonomicon, The Fortress of Solitude, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, Dashiell Hammett, John Dos Passos, Hunter S. Thompson, and I know I've left out too many and will have to go back and add to that list sometime.
