I've been reading books for what feels like my entire life. I don't remember the title of the first book I read, but I do remember being in the first grade reading such captivating tales where I was made to see Dick, Jane, Tom, and a bunch of other kids run and hop. I advanced from their perilous adventures to the highly engaging stories of Curious George, Amelia Bedelia, Ramona and Beezus, Pippi Longstocking, and many other popular books from my childhood.
I am a former high school English teacher who took a walk on the wild side in November 2002 and began to write my first novel which became Freshman Focus. I am still very much an avid reader and prefer gifts of books to shoes, clothes, and purses.
