I’m an avid – if indiscriminate – reader.  I’m a big fan of mysteries and thrillers, but I’ll read a bit of anything – non-fiction, biographies, historical fiction, comedy.  You might even convince me to read a little romance, if it’s well written.

When I’m at home, I have quite a commute, so a lot of my reading is done by audiobook.  I also travel quite a bit (2-3 weeks a month), so my books go on the road with me.  Ebooks, audiobooks on my iPod, and stacks and stacks of ARCs.  Still, nothing is quite as satisfying as curling up with a good, hardcover book.

I enjoy good books, good movies, good wine and smart, funny people to share them with. I’m a fairly talented cook, a bit crafty and I compose crossword puzzles, just for fun. I appreciate well-chosen words, I’m a bit of a grammar freak, I don’t watch much tv (although I am devoted to the things I do watch) but I spend a ton of time on the internet.  My online pals at my favorite forums are some of my very best friends.  I’ve met many, many of them in person and I am strong believer in the power of the internet to bring people together.
