I love books that I can sink into!  My favorites transport me to a different world and take me on a journey with the characters. I do my best to provide that same experience for my readers.

Favorite Things

What I’m obsessed with right now. . .

“ShakespeaRe-Told” –  The Taming of the Shrew.

“A young harridan MP marries a title in order to advance towards her goal of becoming party leader.”

This is my favorite version of The Taming of the Shrew.  It always makes me laugh.  Shirley Henderson is so vicious and delightful as Kate, and Rufus Sewell as Petruchio is awesome. I love it!

Cook Korean! A Comic Book with Recipes

I love cookbooks, and when I was younger, comic books too. This book merges the best of both worlds. I bought it to see how closely the recipes matched up to the foods my mother used to make, and also to learn how to make a few new ones.
