Bio
I live in a world colored by words. The day my first grade teacher started teaching us to read, my eyes were opened and life became more exciting. Princesses and frogs and fairies and handsome princes bounded off the pages and into my impressionable mind. Puppets and pirates and brightly colored balloons floated through my dreams. I needed more, more, more. The local library was my oasis and the books were my treasure. The smell of old, musty pages was the headiest scent of all!!

I'm 43 now and have been through divorce, raised two kids by myself, had my house burn down, been through many trials and tribulations. But I can still travel to faraway lands by opening a book. E-readers won't ever replace hard copies of books in my mind because I need the bright cover, the pages to bend, the broken spine showing years of love. Luckily, my two teenagers inherited my literary bent and can dream as big as I can when they find the perfect book.

That's what I want for all of you. To find the perfect book. To dream the most awesome dream. To step out of your lives for a short, special span of time. See you in the afterword!!!

    1. When I'm reading, I don't realize it but I bend the page back and forth, back and forth. Drives my kids nuts, lol! You can't do that with an E-reader:)

    1. Yes there is Mary! I know this is cliched but the Harry Potter books were so hard for me to put down. The excitement, misery, dread, anticipation and all of the other emotions I felt reading about poor Harry made me feel like he was real. Now THAT'S a perfect book!!

    1. Thanks so much!! I'm glad too. It's so sad to see some of these kids texting and fb'ing with horrible grammar. They don't realize that books not only entertain but teach grammar as well. Some of the biggest words I know come from books, lol.
