About Me

(Updated 12/22/11)

After six years home with my sons and the decade before spent working in finance, I recently raised the curtain on my “second act”. I’ve been in love with books and the places they live for as long as I can remember. In September (2011), I started a job as an librarian’s assistant at a local elementary school and have also committed to spending more time writing, here (mostly here) and elsewhere.

I read…a lot (erm, as of 12/22/11 not so much. Except.for other awesome WordPress blogs!) A lot, that is, for a mom to twin 9-year-olds and a spoiled husky mix! What am I reading (blogs!)? Check back and see. I catalog books I’ve read and/or owned on www.librarything.com, and I participate in their Early Reviewer program.  I enjoy turning people on to books that I love, and I’m always looking for recommendations for my reading list.

And, when life with a capital “L”  takes front stage, as it so often does (when doesn’t it? It’s like Frank Sinatra’s run in Vegas), I’ll be sharing that as well, hoping to sort my thoughts here in a concerted effort to stay out of the loony bin (so far so good!).

Looking forward to seeing you at the circus!

    Hi there!

    My name is Sue, and found your blog today thru WordPress – it captured my interest! I’m from SlimKicker (a healthy living/fitness app), and was wondering if we can do a giveaway for your blog readers?

    Our site basically turns people’s health/fitness goals into a level up game with challenges such as quitting soda for a week. We’re looking for new challenge ideas, so was thinking of holding a contest where your readers leave a comment on a health challenge idea, and we’ll pick our favorite challenge idea, use it on our site, and give the winner either a free digital health scale, slow cooker, or digital heart monitor.

    Let me know if you’re interested by email: sue (at) slimkicker.com

    PS. You can choose not to publish this comment since it’s not really a comment, I just couldn’t find your email address =)


    • No problem! I’ll publish in case anyone else is interested, too. I’ll email you shortly here. I’m starting a boot camp soon, and was planning to blog on it, so maybe I can coordinate with a mention of your site……

  7. Thanks for the like. You sound like you have a great story to tell. Looking forward to more!

  8. Ha ha good work staying out of the loony bin! 🙂
