After spending 11 years as a Young Adult Librarian, I moved libraries and became a Children's and YA Librarian. I love love love books and talking about reading. My favorite types of books include mysteries, romance, thrillers, and spy books. I adore crafty books, regency romances, and cozy mysteries. When I'm not reading or talking about books, I love baking, crafting, watching the Celtics, or snuggling with my two dogs.
