About My Library
For years I read a lot of DIY/self-help books, books on science, natural guides, etc. Lately I've been getting back into the fiction world, interested mostly in fantasy, historical novels, feminism, or books about travel or exploration. My library reflects that. I also have a sizable collection of movies, although I haven't watched many movies since having my son Finn in 2019 (unless you count Disney movies).

I have Chris's small collection cataloged here, as well as Finn's ever-growing collection.
About Me

LT staffer, purveyor of insufferable puns and dad jokes, sipper of single malt scotch.

I love cooking/eating and anything else food-related. I have long-term goals to travel as much as possible. I'm an extroverted introvert, and I recharge by spending time outdoors, gardening, or snuggling with my pets. I have always loved reading fantasy and thriller novels—The Hobbit, Redwall series, and Stephen King may have had something to do with that.

I live in the Maine woods west of Portland, with my husband Chris, my rambunctious son Finn (short for Finnegan) and 1-year old tuxedo cat Shadow (a close 2nd to our favorite kitty we've ever had the pleasure of loving, Maine Coon Stella). Since the pandemic (c. 2020) I decided to get my personal training and nutrition coach certifications so I've been having fun with those, too!
