Before retiring in 2019, I worked for over 40 years in the public sector as an educator, speaker, and researcher in criminal justice, environmental education, fire protection, groundwater, and water conservation. I live in North-Central Texas (Grand Prairie) with my husband, Jim; Princess, Ginger, and Smoky (the cats); and two basset hounds - Peaches and Stoli. I enjoy reading various genres, including mysteries, SciFi, contemporary and paranormal romance, and thrillers, but I have a real weakness for cozies, westerns, dystopian tales, and post-apocalyptic fiction. I just like to read, and I like to connect other readers with books that they might enjoy. 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 The Celebrity Readers’ Finishing the Series Challenge. All those reading prompts keep me motivated to read some of the many books I’ve bought over the years.
