I spent my childhood devouring any fantasy and sci-fi I could get my hands on and I checked out the same three books about Bigfoot from the library. My future grown-up life plan was to become a professional ghost hunter and cryptozoologist, and become famous for finding ghosts, Bigfoot, or even Bigfoot's ghost.
Not much has changed since then (although I'd like to think I am slightly more practical). I'm still an avid reader, now largely drawn to nonfiction. I especially love books about history, science, and lurid true crimes. I also enjoy learning about animals. In an alternate universe I would have been a zoologist -- or a mixologist! You can often spot me reading about cocktails and how to make them. I recommend Alton Brown's margarita.
Besides reading, my true loves are cats, podcasts, Antiques Roadshow, cats, video games, and cats.
