Most of you probably don’t know this, but I love to read (and write). I got my Masters in Creative Writing (simply because I wanted it…not because I needed an Masters Degree for any reason…though I do use that degree now. I teach college English.). I write (when I find time, which is hard to do these days, but I still try and make sure I’m always writing).
My focus has always been children (middle grade) and young adult historical/time travel/fantasy/science fiction. I love history and I love mixing the past and the present (hence my love of time travel). I read all sorts of books (with the exception of horror)!
I’d be lost without my books. I usually set a goal of reading 50 books a year. So roughly one book a week. A good book can take away the troubles of the day, open my imagination, spark an idea, or just be a friend.
What do you like to read? Do you find solace and inspiration in a good book?
