About meThe basics: Happily married for 33 years, two wonderful young adult sons. Reading :I've always loved to read - and I'll read the back of a cereal box if it comes to that! I've read a lot mysteries over the years -but a couple of years ago, one of my son's took a CanLit Course at UBC - and since the books were around the house , I read all of them -and thus my love of CanLit began. Over the past couple of years, my taste in reading has really changed towards Canlit and more literary books.

I love a good browse in a bookstore, chocolate and a nice cup of tea!
