I’m an indie author, librarian, home chef, crafter, motorcycle loving, happily married, native New Englander.
My formal education includes a BA from Brandeis University in History (concentration on US History) and English and American Literature with a minor in Religious Studies and a Masters of Library and Information Science (MLIS) from Simmons College.
I attained my first professional-level librarian job in March 2012 at an academic library in support of one of the medical schools in the Boston area, but I have been working in libraries (of a wide variety) since October 2004. In July 2016 I advanced in my career to become a liaison to a school of dentistry in the Boston area. I love helping people of all ages and backgrounds find information they need or want for work/school or pleasure.
I’m proud to be an indie author. I publish in ebook formats accessible from multiple platforms, print books, online magazines, and print magazines. Please do take a moment to check out my Publications page. I write a wide variety of genres, including: scifi, horror, paranormal romance, and literary.
As for the genres you’ll find reviewed on this blog, I enjoy a wide variety! I like scifi, horror, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, cozies, thrillers, historical fiction, memoirs, nonfiction, and more! Please check out my Review Policies page for more details, particularly if you are interested in submitting a review copy.
I believe that people with mental illnesses should be loved and helped, not stigmatized or demonized. Due to my passion for those struggling with mental illnesses and their loved ones, I created the Mental Illness Advocacy (MIA) Reading Challenge. Please do take a moment to check out the dedicated page and consider broadening your reading horizons!
I am also incredibly into health and fitness within the context of body positivity. I’m passionate about improving not just my health, but public health in general.
I enjoy all crafts, particularly cross-stitch and knitting (at the moment). For my cross-stitching, I have a dedicated page on this blog that also includes some free patterns I designed myself. For knitting, feel free to friend me on Ravelry.
My Pinterest contains a wide variety of boards from recipes I want to try making, to new cross-stitch patterns that intrigue me, to health and wellness tips, to home designs I love.
