My go-to reading choices consistently include debut fiction, eclectic non-fiction, psychological suspense, and memoirs…but have varied a bit more recently to include a good chick-lit or young adult title.
If you are looking for politics, sci-fi, war or history – they don’t live here…sorry.
I’ll read just about anything, but my love is for magical realism, women authors, 20th century novels and ghost stories. I also have a special fondness for short stories and poetry. Lately, I find myself reading a lot of non-fiction on a wide range of topics – everything from yoga to cocktails, from true crime to home decorating and, really, anything in between.
Hi! I was born and raised in the Bronx, NY, not far from Yankee Stadium. I served 5 years active duty in the U.S. Navy, part of it on a guided missile destroyer, affectionately known as a “tin can”. Part of it was also with a joint service command consisting of all the other branches of service. In civilian life, I worked in the finance industry with banks, brokers, stock exchanges and regulators. Semi-retired, I moved to Florida and have been employed at a variety of jobs including financial planner, insurance agent and Sears Retail associate. I love to experience new things, to travel and especially to read. Enjoys reading Historical Fiction, Histories, Military History, Classical Literature and Fantasy.
I enjoy young adult, general fiction, and fantasy books, and I especially love a good trilogy. I’ve been getting more into graphic novels – the artsy ones with interesting story lines being my favorites (think Saga, Monstress, Little Bird). I’ll give almost anything a try, but there’s a high likelihood that I’m not going to finish it if it doesn’t catch me in the first few pages.
I absolutely LOVE audio books. I prefer listening to mysteries and thrillers (bonus points if they’re British), as long as they’re not police procedurals, or hard-boiled. Give me an amateur detective any day! I also dig a good horror novel, and some YA as long as it’s not too angsty. A few of my favorite novels are Night Film by Marisha Pessl, If We Were Villains by M.L Rio, and The Talisman by Stephen King and Peter Straub.
Likes suspense, mysteries, horror and fantasy. I consider myself a communicator and above all a facilitator. It is my privilege to help and serve our population in all necessary aspects to somehow contribute to the public service, seeking also a clean and educational entertainment.
Enjoys: Science Fiction, Fantasy, Thriller, Mystery, Post-Apocalyptic, and Dystopian books, audiobooks, and films as well as non-fiction documentaries and books about historical events and true crime. I am a massive geek who enjoys crafting and cosplaying and attend many comic & sci-fi conventions in and around Florida. As an information and technology librarian I enjoy using our various digital services like Overdrive to download ebooks and e-audiobooks.
