In My Own Words:
I was an acquisitions librarian in Pennsylvania
and wrote a monthy review column of recommended

freelance after my son was born.
I have 2 dogs, a cairn and a pom, and four cats. Oh, I have a 21 year old son and a husband who wants to but is nowhere near retiring.
I am a speed reader( a gift I was born with) and read two books a day.
