I am a retired chef who still loves to cook and a very prolific reader since my brother introduced me to Little Women. My preferences usually run to historical and contemporary romance, but I read across the board from the Bible, cookbooks, the classics, and all manner of fiction.
Some of my favorite authors include: Catherine Anderson, Lucy Monroe, Lori Foster, Kathleen Eagle, Carly Phillips, Mary Balogh, Julianne MacLean, Barbara Pierce, Candice Hern, Suzanne Brockmann, Kasey Michaels, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Deborah Smith, Kristin Hannah, Suzanne MacPherson, Donna Kauffman, Janelle Denison, Susan Lyons, and too many more to name.
I welcome book recommendations from authors and other romance lovers and relish the opportunity to make recommendations through my reviewing. I began pursuing a position as a book reviewer in 2002 when I realized I wanted to share my love affair with books. Today, I am happy to say I am affiliated with some amazing people who share the same passion for books that I do. If I can make a difference in a personâ€™s view of reading, or share the emotional connection I have found through books, I will die a very happy woman.
To me, there is nothing more satisfying than sharing a fabulous meal with friends and talking about books. I have added significantly to my To Be Read â€œroomâ€ through the years, and I take great pleasure in discovering new authors, trying new genres and talking about the books I read.
