About meNot so shockingly, I love to read. I love to write as well. I love my children and my life...I guess you could say I am a lover. Reading sometimes consumes me, though so I have to watch the exclusionary potential of my favorite pastime. Always as I read, I have a dictionary at my side at the very least and in a best-case scenario, I have the dictionary and my Reader's Encyclopedia lest a word or a reference to a writer or to a work be made with which I am unfamiliar. I hate that (hmmm...interesting, didn't I just say I was a lover?). The book that most moved me due in no small part to the guidance and interpretation of my 9th grade English teacher, Mr. Callahan, was, To Kill a Mockingbird. Thanks to Harper Lee's deft story-telling ability, the gorgeous characters into whom she breathed such real life, the presence of her social conscience without a hint of overbearing and to Mr. C's navigation through the hidden secrets and "gems" if you'll allow the pun, of this book and of literature in general, thanks to all of that, a whole new world was opened unto me and thus my already soaring passion for reading, reached new heights. I called Mr. C many years later to tell him how profoundly he had impacted my life only to find, sadly, that he had passed. The moral of that story is don't wait, say it now. Thank you Mr. C, wherever you are. I am forever grateful to you. If I had to create a very short list of my other all-time favorite books, they'd be: Edith Wharton's House of Mirth, Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, pretty much anything Stephen King but most notably, The Stand, It, The Shining and Salem’s Lot (which, read at 15 years old, late at night in a quiet house nearly scared me to death!) Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, The Shipping News by E. Annie Proulx, A Wrinkle in Time, Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men and The Winter of Our Discontent, Dean Koontz's Odd series, The Horse Whisperer by Nicholas Evans, Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher, The Thorn Birds, C.S. Lewis' the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Awakening by Kate Chopin know what? Never mind, it is impossible to create a 'short' list of my favorites because it is just too long! So, okay, then, that's it. That's my profile, and I'm stickin' to it. Love to you.

About my libraryIt's eclectic. I'm in love with it.
