Maria Munoz

One of six children, and the middle daughter to boot, I very rarely got control of the television while growing up. So I entertained myself by reading, and found a passion that has lasted a lifetime. My love of reading comes from my love of language. Words fascinate me. David Tennant is my favorite Dr. Who, in part, because he regularly plays with words (Allons e!). My favorite book is The Time Traveler's Wife because I love the lyrical quality of the writing. I read many different genres, but lean towards contemporary romance, romantic suspense, cozy mysteries, and anything humorous. I can always be found with a book and never hesitate to pull it out if I have time to kill. In addition to my day job, I am a copy editor for FreshFiction, and co-host of the Fort Worth chapter of the DFW Tea book clubs.
