Ever since I taught myself to read at
age two, I have been an avid reader and
collector of books. I am seldom
without a book in my hand, stacks by my
bedside and more waiting on my Kindle,
so I am very happy to be a book
reviewer for FreshFiction and have been
so since the last century. How can you
tell I love historical fiction? Other
book genres I love are regency
romances, suspense thrillers,
contemporary fiction, more romance
books and anything I can get my hands
on! Having a background in education
and organizational development, I also
love to read kids’ books and YA and
books on business.
I currently live in the National
Capital Region of Canada (aka Ottawa)
where Tinkerbelle, my beautiful Siamese
cat, rules the roost and reminds us
every day of her regal heritage,
especially when she wants treats! As
the saying goes: dogs may have owners,
but cats have staff!
