I am a retired high school English teacher. I have been a lifelong reader. I love historical fiction, memoirs, psychological thrillers, and mysteries. I have been a member of a bookclub composed of high school teachers both current and retired since 2002
I have five children and ten grandchildren. My love of reading was learned from my grandmother who taught in a one-room schoolhouse. She earned her college diploma in 1919. Her daughter, my mother, made sure my brothers and I went to the library weekly. As an AFS student to Brazil in 1968, I travel to Brazil frequently to visit my exchange family. My children have been and my exchange family’s children and grandchildren have spent time with my family.
Today, I love reviewing books and interacting with authors on Facebook and online.
