I will be the first to admit that I am addicted to books. I like romance novels with a magical spin and memoirs about everyday people. My literary philosophy is simple. “Read what you like. If you can’t read through the first couple of chapters without your mind wandering to other things in your life or if you dread having to finish it, then throw it out the front door. (No tossing a library book please.) Read what speaks to your heart.”
I hold a bachelor’s degree in English and Writing from the University of West Florida and a master’s degree from Florida State University in Library and Information Science. I also have a certification in reference services from FSU and in library leadership from the Sunshine State Library Leadership Institute.
I reside with my childhood sweetheart just a few miles from where we grew up on Perdido Key, Florida. When not at the beach, writing or reading, I can be found wandering the stacks in my library, watching Doctor Who (I am dedicated Whovian) or spending time with my family. A family that consists of a husband, a Brady Bunch of six children, and seven grandchildren.
