Toes in the sand, fat novel in my hands, and a cold drink by my side = my ideal afternoon. I don't remember a time in my life when I did not love reading and I make an effort every day to instill that love in my children. I prefer to read a physical book but will read on my phone or a Kindle if there's a good story to consume. I go for heavy character development, quiet tales of big personalities and novels that force me to think outside of my comfort zone. I'm one of those people (considered naive by some) who firmly believe that we have as much, if not more, to learn about the human experience through fiction as through nonfiction.
My favorite writers all pen literary fiction but I'm an equal-opportunity reader and find value and entertainment reading most any genre. I'd love to help you find your next favorite book!
