Welcome to my blog!
I am an English professor by day and an avid reader by morning, afternoon and night. I teach both online and traditional classes in writing and literature, and I can't imagine doing anything else career-wise. After working retail, trying my hand at graphic design, and a short stint teaching high school, I finally found a job that doesn't feel like work. Basically, I get paid to be a book nerd. How cool is that?!
I read *almost* anything. I favor fiction (literary, contemporary, classic), non-fiction (foodie, travel, memoir, and offbeat), graphic novels, and children's/young adult. I received a Barnes and Noble Nook for Christmas in 2009, and I love it. I'm a total nerd for e-books now.
On the personal side, I have a wonderful fiance named Chuck, two awesome stepkiddos-to-be whom I refer to as Rocketgirl (13) and Rocketboy (12), and a condo full of animals: three dogs and a cat. Chuck and I had our first child on April 17, 2010, and his name is Greyson. He's currently trying to take over the world one "coo" at a time.
