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.

I have taken a number of literature classes recently including one on Adultery in 19th century fiction, one on the Modern Novel, a Children’s lit class and most recently a class called Women Who Sleuth.

I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book. I have worked with children from first through fourth grade.
