Before retiring in 2019, I worked in
the public sector as an educator,
speaker, and researcher in the fields
of criminal justice, environmental
education, fire protection,
groundwater, and water conservation
for over 40 years. I live in north
central Texas (Grand Prairie) with her
husband, Jim, several cats, and two
basset hounds named Duke and Martini.
I am one of the many authors of Urban
Environmental Education (Cornell
I read a variety of genres including
cozy mysteries, SciFi, contemporary
romance, paranormal romance and
mysteries, but have a real weakness
for dystopian tales and post-
apocalyptic fiction. Not only do I
like to read but I like to connect
other readers with book that they
might enjoy. (I had a part-time job in
bookstore several years ago but I
couldnâ€™t afford to keep work there.
Iâ€™d pretty much just exchange my
paycheck plus a whole lot extra for
all the books I discovered while
shelving and helping customers.)
I write a couple of blogs about books
Iâ€™ve read and participate annually in
the Ultimate PopSugar Reading
Challenge, Goodreads Personal Reading
Challenge, Book Riotâ€™s Read Harder
Challenge, and Celebrity Readersâ€™
Finishing the Series Challenge.
