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. I'm still an avid reader, now largely drawn to nonfiction. I 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.
