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 University). 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 couldn’t afford to keep work there. I’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 I’ve read and participate annually in the Ultimate PopSugar Reading Challenge, Goodreads Personal Reading Challenge, Book Riot’s Read Harder Challenge, and Celebrity Readers’ Finishing the Series Challenge.
