It’s me, book-omnivore, novice novelist and The Blogger behind the Curtain. Nothing fabulous, I’ll agree. Baby-boomer and born late bloomer, it took me thirty-seven years to finish college. I put it all down to an addiction to words.
Other kids finished school and forgot about books for the summer. I went camping and read the warning labels on bug spray, thrilled by all the words. In college, my dorm-mates went to the library to study in peace, right? Bad idea for me. I walked through the literature shelves to reach a study table and arrived with books that weren’t on the teacher’s list. This is probably why I don’t remember a thing about science but I know a lot about Oscar Wilde. Well, that’s how my river runs.
After college, I worked as a paralegal for thirty years because that job gave me more words to read. Now I focus on putting my own down on paper.
I just finished the polish on my first book, a middle-grade historical fiction story. Now I’m searching for the agent for this novel, revising the second, and researching a third. In my spare hours, I write copy for gas money and books which brings me back to this blog. As long as I’m writing about books I’ve loved, I’m combining two favourite things!
