I was born and raised in a tiny town in the wilds of northern New York, a pretty, little college town called Potsdam. I grew up in a family of lawyers and teachers and bucked all the traditions. Before becoming a writer, I spent a lot of years wearing combat boots in the US Army. I spent most of my time in boots working as a Signals Intelligence Analyst (no jokes!) and a linguist. I also worked as a tech writer, an entirely different kind of writing, for Corning Glass Works. Now, I’m an Army wife and a mom to four sons.  Over the years, our Army life has taken us all over the place and I have been lucky enough to work and live in some pretty amazing places.  Now we live in Hawaii, just minutes from the beach!

I am a writer thoroughly in love

I love reading challenges! I did many of them when I was actively book blogging and I still do a lot of them on my own. They are such a good way to get out of your comfort zone and diversify your reading. So, I decided to create some reading lists by genre, topic, etc. to help you find new books to read for your various reading challenges. If you’ve never done any challenges, A Novel Challenge...
