My mother has been a librarian since I was a baby, so I was introduced to books immediately and have always loved reading. When I was old enough to read myself, you could never find me without my nose in a book.

Thank you Shannan Lee for your support, I'd like to know what books of mine you have not read yet?
I have bought every one of your books on kindle, however I haven’t read any of them. I am swamped by review books that people send to me, but I will read them in the near future (that’s my goal anyway)
