Review: The Masqueraders by Georgette Heyer
The Masqueraders by Georgette Heyer My rating: 4 of 5 stars I'd never read any Georgette Heyer, but I kept running across her name in various contexts. I finally combed through her books at my local library to find one that was unlikely to make me throw it ...

Review: Fire and Hemlock by Diana Wynne Jones
Fire and Hemlock by Diana Wynne Jones My rating: 4 of 5 stars This is the tenth book in my 2014 TBR Pile Challenge . I always enjoy Diana Wynne Jones' writing, but, for some reason, I've been putting off reading more of her books. Can't imagine why. Fire an...

Review: Blow Me Down by Katie MacAlister
Blow Me Down by Katie MacAlister My rating: 3 of 5 stars By the description, this had all the potential to be like Vicki Lewis Thompson's Nerds series . Unfortunately, it fell victim to the need to shove an alpha hero mold onto its potential beta, thereby w...

Review: Shattered Pillars (Eternal Sky #2) by Elizabeth Bear
Shattered Pillars by Elizabeth Bear My rating: 4 of 5 stars This is the second book in a trilogy that's turned out to be a real treat for me. I didn't know what the expect from the start, and it continues to be full of fun surprises. I have no idea what mig...

Review: Lock In by John Scalzi
Lock In by John Scalzi My rating: 5 of 5 stars This is the John Scalzi's latest book. It's a bit of a departure from the other books I've read of his, but he was visiting Saratoga Springs on his tour to promote it, so I thought I'd give it a listen. Audible...

Review: Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne
Journey to the Center of the Earth: A Signature Performance by Tim Curry by Jules Verne My rating: 4 of 5 stars This is another of those classics you almost don't have to read. The main points are already such a part of popular culture that reading it is mo...

Review: Coraline by Neil Gaiman
Coraline by Neil Gaiman My rating: 5 of 5 stars I'd read this book years ago. Then it was picked as the October read for my book club, and I leapt at the chance for a reread. This is a delightfully creepy read. Coraline has just moved to an old house, divid...

Review: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving My rating: 5 of 5 stars Who could resist an audio of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow , read by the actor who plays Ichabod Crane on the TV series? I certainly couldn't, especially because Audible was giving it aw...

Review: The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury
The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury My rating: 5 of 5 stars Ah, if only someone told me what to expect from this book. The way people described it, it sounded like any other space opera about human settlers on a fictional Mars. Had someone told me it was...

Review: Kitty Takes a Vacation (Kitty Norville #3) by Carrie Vaughn
Kitty Takes a Holiday by Carrie Vaughn My rating: 3 of 5 stars This is the third book in the Kitty Norville series. As much as I appreciate that the books don't fall into a convenient formula, it makes for some uneven quality of the books. In this installat...

Review: The Hot Zone (Rainshadow, #3; Harmony, #11) by Jayne Castle
The Hot Zone by Jayne Castle My rating: 2 of 5 stars This is another book read for a book club, and quite possibly the straw that broke the camel's back. I can't keep clogging up my reading time with this tripe. My to-read is 773 items long, for crying out ...

Review: Thief of Shadows by Elizabeth Hoyt
Thief of Shadows by Elizabeth Hoyt My rating: 3 of 5 stars This book is the latest in my quest to find a romance novel that doesn't make me roll my eyes. While it had promise, the idea behind it is silly, and it was determined to take away everything I like...

Introduction
I'm an aspiring author who works for a nonprofit as my day job. I've been tapping away at various manuscripts for years, and I studied Creative Writing in college. I'm still a work in progress.
Bragging rights
I've been able to take two of my favorite authors to dinner. I challenged myself to read 125 books in 2011, and met that goal on 12/22/2011. I've been working on being a good writer for a long time, and am on the right track for the first time. I helped start a writing group that lasted almost 4 years. I get a LOT of compliments at work about what a good job I do, both with the people on my caseload and with my detail orientation and organization. I'm currently undergoing sleep therapy to correct the sleep apnea that's interfered with at least half of my life.
