Informazioni su di meI don't remember learning to read. My mom says it's because she started reading to me when she was pregnant. Most of my childhood was spent reading, getting in trouble for reading when I should be doing chores or school, forcing my brother to re-enact my books when my mother tossed us outside to "get some fresh air" - although I suspect it was more so she could have a moment's peace - and begging for just one more book at the school book fairs.

In high school, I hid from the bullies in the library, using books to help control the fear and loneliness. I took two years of AP English and discovered Shakespeare, Hurston, McCaffrey and Cather. I read when my parents fought and I read when I cried and I read when I didn't know what else to do.

In college, I discovered used book stores and inter-library loans. I also received life-altering advice from a cranky, wonderful, old art history professor. She commented my writing was terrible and I needed to read more. I responded that I read 3-5 books a week, and she said, "Then you're reading the wrong books." She was correct. Taking her words to heart, I expanded my narrow book choices to include a sprawling range of subjects, prose, authors and genres.

I maintain a blog (see below) where I write a review of every book I read. Peruse at your own risk.
