Born in Decatur, Illinois, Lenore has loved reading since first she wondered what green eggs and ham would taste like. After getting her B.A. in English, she worked as an administrative assistant at a local community college before moving to Chicago a few years ago to find a job where she could work with words. She is now a freelance proofreader and copy editor in educational publishing and has what she considers a dream job: getting paid to read!
Lenore started her reviewing career about 10 years ago at the request of friends from the Old Book Barn, who published a newsletter of romance reviews. She began with regencies (no one else wanted to do them), but has since reviewed contemporary and historical romances, mysteries, and women’s fiction. Having worked with Tanzey Cutter on the OBB Gazette, Lenore was happy to join her in the world of online reviewing at Fresh Fiction. Besides reading, Lenore enjoys writing, eating good chocolate (not that there’s any other kind), and collecting all things cat-related.
