have been a reader all my life. The first book I remember reading was my cousins Greek Mythology high school textbook when I was six. Growing up in Arkansas, I never had a lot of access to books, so I read what I could, when I could, including the backs of cereal boxes (I know, cliche, right?) School was the discovery of a world of wonders that I had no idea existed. Especially for a fat girl with glasses and braids. I spent the next several years wandering around with my nose in books, from fiction to physics and everything in between. (Hey, I still do that!) These days, I am home most days, after surviving stage-III breast cancer. After two solid years of ATC chemotherapy and a long stint of radiation, I just don’t get out as much as I used to. Of course, that leaves me even more time to read so who really cares? Yoga keeps me from turning into a lump, and the dogs make me get out and walk, so life is good! My favorite reads are Urban Fantasy, mysteries and anything paranormal. I can still get into a lot of other genres, and do, but everyone has a favorite child, even if they don’t want to admit it, right? I have been a quilter for years, am going through a “knitting jones” right now, and absolutely love doing home renovation – not something I can do very well any more, but hey, at least I got that stupid fan up! I love animals, the environment and food (even though my cooking consists of box brownie mix these days . . .) Technically, I have a Masters Degree in Forensics and a Bachelors in Math (neither of which I utilize, fancy that) as well as a Bachelors in English Literature from long ago in a land far, far away. But hey, if I can get this editing and reviewing off the ground, at least I will be using that one!
