In what city and town do you live?

Vancouver, WA

Who are your favorite authors?

James Clemens blows my mind for his intricate plots. As a teenager, I liked Lloyd Alexander and Robin McKinley (her originals are better than her rewrites of existing stories). I recently found John Moore, who writes goofy yet witty fantasy satires that are easy to read.

Where do you get your inspiration to read/try a new author?

I browse book stores, write down books that look interesting, and then try to get it at the library. An interesting cover with a good summary will be what makes it on the list. In recent years, I've also gravitated more towards women authors.

How often do you typically read books?

I read during my lunch break and when I ride the bus, so it takes me about 2 weeks to finish a book.

Do you devour your books, read them, or just wait for osmosis to kick in?

I used to devour, but now I wait of osmosis. Part of the problem is that I quit "living" until a book is finished. Books will also sometime induce insomnia.


I used to read a lot in high school, mostly fantasy, but I realized I had to give that up in college or my grades would suffer. Somehow, never got back into it, but I'm slowly doing so with the help of this group.
