As soon as I learned to read, I read,
and never stopped. As a lifelong
reader of mystery, suspense, and
thrillers, I bifurcated at some point
into romance because of my infatuation
with vampires. Iâ€™m a very eclectic
reader â€“ I will read a M/M romance, a
technothriller, a historical romance,
a biography, an erotic romance or an
inspirational one with the same
enthusiasm â€“ but what makes me chose a
book varies little, regardless of the
genre: originality, creativity, solid
plotting, complex and charismatic
characters, wit, and most of all great
writing skills and spellbinding
storytelling. I have a Master's Degree
in Linguistics, and I'm fluent in
French and English, as well as basic
knowledge of a few other languages. I
became a proofreader and sometime
copy-editor because I know I have the
skills to contribute, even ever so
slightly, to this wonderful world of
books, be it only to ensure that those
tiny annoying details â€“ such as a
heroineâ€™s eye color changing midway,
and so on â€“ do not happen. Yes,
accuracy is crucial to me, but so is
being thoroughly entertained.
