I hope you are like me. I have been an avid reader for as long as I can remember. It is actually quite simple. I LOVE BOOKS! I admire and have the utmost respect for a writer who can have a thought and an idea about a story, fact or fiction, research everything and anyone about the idea and then bring it all to life on the pages of a book. All of us who love the written word get to go on the journey with the writer. The locations around the world, the history, the characters all coming together for us readers to share the experience and the journey.
A little about me. I am a wife, a mother of 4, a grandmother of 7. I worked in the field of Medicine in the NICU of a major hospital before I got married and briefly after my first son was born. I was a stay at home mom for 18 years. I then worked in the field of Real Estate Administration and then in the field of insurance – legal and personal insurance claims. When I was living my life during all of the above, I did not have the time to read as much as I do now. I retired almost 3 years ago so I have more time now to enjoy my love of books.
I have a broad and varied range of interest. My personal favorite is historical fiction. The inter-twining of historical fact along with a great story and interesting characters is what I enjoy most. I also adore medical thrillers, mysteries, the classics, political thrillers and the occasional family themed novel.
I also look forward to reading the autobiographies that have piled up under my desk at home while I was working. I guess I will pretty much read anything. My house is full of books – my family can attest to that!
So if you are like me, where you finish one book and have another all picked out and right there, ready to start after you have completed the emotions and feelings of the last, join me and let’s go on another adventure together.
