About

I am a social worker by profession, with a specialty in families and children. I am also a reading tutor and I volunteer with children who have cancer and their families.

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. Some of my favorite mystery authors are Peter Robinson, Ann Cleeves, Anne Perry, Elly Griffiths, Elizabeth George, Fiona Barton, Susie Steiner, Val McDermid 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.

Lit classes that I have taken since joining NetGalley are Women in Detective Fiction, Children’s Lit, Adultery in 19th Century Fiction and one on the modern novel. Non-English lit classes that I have taken since joining have been in religion, history, music and art history.

I have actively been reviewing for NetGalley since May 2017. I give honest reviews to the books that I read. I welcome reading books by in many genres by many publishers. Thanks for allowing me this privilege.
