About Me

English major and former librarian, I’m a lifelong reader of just about anything in print. I read widely, but my favorite genres are cozy mysteries, post-apocalyptic novels, and any book featuring dogs, cats or both. I’m not a fan of steamy romance or erotica, and I’ve developed a taste for independent writers since acquiring a Kobo e-reader and Kindle. I beta-read for several authors, but have no fiction-writing aspirations of my own; to quote author Tim Kreider, “I don’t know how to reconcile the necessities of plot with anything resembling real life. I just don’t understand life well enough to make things up.”

Although I occasionally register for a few giveaways, most of the books I review are from my personal library, and I paid for them myself or they were offered in exchange for my email address. No one influences my opinion about a book, to which a few authors can ruefully attest.
