Lover of sci-fi and fantasy for all ages. My specialties are time travel and magical realism. Fan of Neil Gaiman and Doctor Who. I also read a lot of historical mysteries. In non-fiction I tend to gravitate toward how-to and self-help but no topic is off limits. I’m a big retro nerd, whether it be video games, toys or furniture. I love old things and old houses. My mission in life is to own a crumbling, old mansion complete with my very own ghost and a secret passage.
I love everything, but my favorites are quirky fiction in all genres, nonfiction history books, graphic novels, and horror movies. The weirder the better. I listen to any and all music.
English major turned librarian.
For books: classic literature (all nationalities), thrillers, and YA/middle-grade.
For movies/TV shows: crime dramas, sitcoms, page-to-screen adaptations, action/adventure, animated children’s.
For music: Christian music, pop, soundtracks/scores.
I love sushi, character development, and Star Wars. My favorite childhood nursery rhyme was the theme from Cheers, and I stand by that. I always up for solving a mystery, bonus points if it takes place in a sleepy Maine town, and I firmly believe that A Muppet Christmas Carol is the best adaptation of the Dickens classic. My top three Marvel movies are Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, and Captain Marvel, and pop culture gives me a lot of feelings in general. I don’t like ketchup, but mustard is pretty much the bee’s knees.
I love to read, especially historical fiction and psychological thrillers. I am also a fan of nonfiction such as biographies, true crime, and self- help books and podcasts.
