All right, I need to tell you about me. I figure if you don’t know who I am, you won’t know that everything I say is worth reading.
I was born and raised in Michigan so I use a nasal ‘A’ and say “I know, right?” all too frequently. I pronounce hockey ‘hA-key’ and I’m proud of it. For school I studied in Southern Indiana and earned two degrees: BS in Global Business and BA in Spanish and International Studies.
I’ve wanted to be a writer since I was 14 but never devoted the time to making it happen. Since graduating from school and moving back to Michigan, I’ve starting dedicating time to doing what I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve completed a manuscript for a Young Adult novel and I’m working with some wonderful friends on editing it. I am a NaNoWriMo 2013 Winner (52,872 words in 19 days) and that manuscript is currently undergoing editing-surgery. It’s a long and painful process.
In my personal life, I’m married to a wonderful man who actually has the English degree I pine after. We have two cutie-pie little turtles,Jane and Marty. I work in automotive (see above about being from Michigan) as a recruiter.
That’s about it, I believe. Please leave a comment introducing yourself so we can start a great conversation about writing or life. I look forward to meeting everyone!
I will try to write a review for every book I read. I’ve been successful in this since starting this blog and I hope to continue with this. After the review posts here, I will also post it to Goodreads. I use their same 5-star system with no partial stars (it’s 2 or 3, no 2.5).
While I try to read ARC or free copies soon after I get them, that is not always the case. I like to read for my book club and my own pleasure in addition to reading emerging authors. Please be kind if I’m slow to get to your book.
If you are looking for a review, please email me and we can talk about when I will have time. I prefer contemporary and historical fiction for adults and YA. I read very little Science Fiction or Romance so please do not contact me with these requests. I only accept physical copies, no eBooks please.
