I would help care for magical creatures in Fablehaven. I would make astute observations about people at Pemberley, while having tea with Elizabeth Bennett. I would stay at Damselfly Inn in the imagined town of Thornton, VT (from a series of romances by Cameron Garriepy). And, of course, I'd be working writing along side the women and men of P.O.W. to change the world in New North (from my own book P.O.W.ER). If a book draws me into the world, any kind of book, I want to be there meeting the characters and sharing the adventures, tasting the food, experiencing worlds unknown. That is part of the appeal of reading (and writing) for me.(less)

Over the summer, I will often read several books that require a slower read, and several lighter ones. It just depends on my mood. (less)

New Beginnings, New Opportunities, New Connections

We made it to 2021! For me, the arbitrariness of the New Year doesn’t really change much. Still, it always becomes a reflection about the past 12 months, and a moment to dream of the future. We cannot deny that 2020 was a really bizarre, difficult year. We’ve all lost a lot. We’ve all experienced … Continue reading New Beginnings, New Opportunities, New Connections
