Member Since
August 2012

I live and work in Houston, TX. I am a Texan, so an occasional y'all slips out in conversation. I am an avid reader and must have stacks on my to-be-read shelves at all times. I am in a few book clubs and reading circles. I read suspense, British murder mysteries, YA, and children's books. I am asked often to write reviews, but I only do reviews for books that I could discuss with my saintly mother.

All reviews are offered free, without any obligation, and are my express opinion only.

If you want to check out the HWH website at Houstonwritershouse.com they list the critique groups available. SCBWI-houston.org lists their critique groups on their site. There are a lot of authors up that way. I hope you find exactly what you need. Hope to see you at the upcoming mini-conference on November 8 with HWG.(less)

Years ago I couldn't wait until the next Kay Scarpetta novel came out. Now, they seem to be thrown together like Pollack paintings, except Pollack was good at what he did. At least with this one the third person is easier to read than the last two Sc ...more
