Book Shelf

I devoured Nancy Drew and Babysitter’s Club books as a kid. I kept a stack of them on my night stand next to my pink porcelain lamp. Every night I would finger through the pages and imagine these fictional characters were real and we were friends. It was an escape. And I couldn’t get enough. Not then. And not now.

Books are an important to me. They always have been. I agree that to be a good writer, you must read good writing.

Here are some books that have inspired and challenged me.  I will update this page regularly to share what I am currently reading.
