I read a wide variety of genre - primarily fiction (although I just picked up a copy of the 6th Extinction - a new book about a mass extinction that is currently underway (there having been 5 other mass extinctions over the past 650 million years or so - the dinosaurs were in one...). I read science fiction, Southern gothic, short stories, classics, books by favorite authors: Truman Capote, Joyce Carol Oates, William Faulkner, Sinclair Lewis, Stephen King, Ray Bradbury. I tend to read "through" authors. I read all of their books I can get my hands and if they are living - like Donna Tartt - wait anxiously for their next book. I am not complete without a book to read in my hands...

I grew up in a small town in the South and through reading, discovered a huge world out there far beyond what I had experienced. I was hooked. Mom used to read from 101 Famous Poems and I loved "The Raven" so she bought me my first book - a collection of Poe stories and poems at 4 years old... Which may have something to do with the way I turned out. I am an avid reader, book collector, art lover, internet aficionado, web developer and e-commerce shop owner. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with my Partner of 22 years.
