About

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I have adored mysteries ever since reading Nancy Drew for the first time. I happily made my way through Trixie Belden, the Dana Girls and the Hardy Boys, then moved on to Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers and Ngaio Marsh. I have kept going as you can see from my blog entries. Some of my favorite mystery authors are Peter Robinson, Ann Cleeves, Anne Perry, Elly Griffiths, Elizabeth George and… the list goes on. I also enjoy reading all kinds of fiction and non-fiction including classics, biographies, books on religion and spirituality, self-help books, poetry; everything really. I just love to read.

This fall I am taking a class on children’s lit. The reading list includes fairy tales, Peter Pan, Little Women, Tuck Everlasting, The Little Prince, The Wizard of Oz and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. I am excited! Other 2018 classes that I have taken are Adultery in 19th century fiction and one on the modern novel where the readings included A Room With A View, Mrs. Dalloway, Their Eyes Were Watching God and The Great Gatsby.

I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book. Currently, I am working with a six year old boy.
