I’m also a fiction editor, voracious eclectic reader, and semi-retired book and film blogger; a former educator and counselor working with troubled youth; and an unschooling mom, at the beck and call of rescue dogs.

I live in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. My heart is divided among this region, my Eastern North Carolina roots, and Seattle, where I fly at every opportunity like a homing pigeon.

Some of my favorite authors, in no particular order: Jane Austen, Anne Tyler,

Under My Skin by Lisa Unger
"I lost many hours of sleep while reading this. It kept me turning pages. The end was maybe just a little too neat though, and there's one thread left hanging that made the end a bit unsatisfying for me. The thread is mentioned, but apparently, the..." Read more of this review »

Chuck Palahniuk
“Old George Orwell got it backward.Big Brother isn't watching. He's singing and dancing. He's pulling rabbits out of a hat. Big Brother's busy holding your attention every moment you're awake. He's making sure you're always distracted. He's making sure you're fully absorbed.He's making sure your imagination withers. Until it's as useful as your appendix. He's making sure your attention is always filled.And this being fed, it's worse than being watched. With the world always filling you, no one has to worry about what's in your mind. With everyone's imagination atrophied, no one will ever be a threat to the world.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Lullaby
