hello and welcome!
There is nothing I love more than to read books. I have a day job that has nothing to do with books (unfortunately!), but a few of my close friends are editors or agents or work for PR agencies and I have even met a few writers. All of them have told me I should start my own blog. For a couple years I debated it, but for the new year I decided I’d give it a whirl.
Fiction is my bag. Whether it is genre fiction or literary fiction, I love it. Anything from Charlotte Bronte to Anne Rice, Herman Melville to JK Rowling, I am all over the spectrum.
Good advice. My friends tell me that I always give measured, good advice. That’s what my aim is here. I don’t want to color stories in a negative light, but I don’t want to be effusive either. That’s my style. Straight shooter, but I’ll let you know when something touches me in the soul. That’s what I love most about books anyway.
I’m a pretty private person. But I know people will be asking, so here goes: I grew up in Virginia. Went to college in California & NYU. Travelled the world for two years and now live outside New York City. I don’t like to talk too much about myself unless I’m face-to-face with you, so I’ll just say this: I’m 31, I am of mostly of Southwest Asian heritage, I love animals, I’m worried about having a child (I always get asked about children, ugh), my job is important to me, I only drink wine WHILE cooking so I can think straight while reading myself to sleep.
I wish you good will,
