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.
