Hi! I am so glad you’re here and visiting my little piece of the world.
I’m a 30-something blogger, writer, reader, actress, non-profit worker and future librarian making a life in south-central Indiana with my husband and dog. When I’m not at my day job (Business & Communications director), I spend my days writing, reading and helping other people find books they love. I’m a sister, wife, daughter, aunt and friend to many. I’m passionate about following your dreams and believe that as long as you’re still breathing, God’s not done with you yet.
I come by my love of reading honestly – I don’t remember a day or time when my parents didn’t have a book in their hands. No matter what was going on, it was easy to escape into a different world. I remember the fist time I journeyed with Alice down the rabbit hole. I remember those crazy babysitter’s club kids keeping the kids safe and solving mysteries/crimes. I remember the prairie with Laura, Mary and Pa. I remember taking a stand with Mother Abagail as the war got ready to let loose. I remember Jo and her sisters. I remember falling in love for the first time with a character. I remember the first time a book broke my heart. And, as I grew, my love of reading was only overshadowed by my love of writing. (Heck, if you’re lucky, maybe I will show you the very first book I ever wrote). Every character and story I read made me want to create worlds of my own.
As an adult, my passion for reading has steadily grown. I’m like my mother in many ways, including how I am now rarely without a book to read and a world that I can escape into at a moment’s notice.
So, while I cannot promise that I will blog every day, I can promise that when I do blog, it won’t be a waste of your time to read. Join me as I explore the power of the written word, both as a writer and as a reader. I will help you find new books you love and maybe even discover some of your favorites all over again. Don’t think you’re a reader? Please, ask me to find a book you’ll love. I will do my best! Don’t be surprised if you hear a little bit about live theater and using your influence to change the world, too.
So, join me as I explore what it means to be a reader and a writer in the 21st century.
