I am not highly educated. However, I have been a life-long reader. Books are my passion. I imagine I've read ten or twenty thousand by now, in all kinds of areas. I am an environmentalist, (whatever that means), a vegetarian, a sex positive activist, a very liberal person.
My major influences are the writers that broke convention: Jane Austen, Fitzgerald, Anais Nin, Henry Miller, Camille Paglia, Hunter Thompson, J.D. Salinger, Tom Wolfe. Geez, one could go on and on.
I won't bore you. Please don't read me if you hate those people.
