Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – by way of Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas. LOL!
What do you do?
Retired from DuPont as a Chemist recently. I married my childhood sweetheart and moved back to Philadelphia. I’m currently in the process of finding a place to call home.
Who inspired your love for reading and how were you inspired?
My father bought me a book when I was 6. He was a SEPTA bus driver and my mother had recently died, so he had to take me to work. I fell in love with reading right then and there!
What is it about reading that you most enjoy?
I LOVE it when a book makes me feel something – happy, sad, cry, mad, excited, upset, etc. That means I connected with the characters. I also enjoy reading about locations. The details help me choose vacation spots. LOL!
What are your top three favorite fiction genres?
Small Town Romance
What are you reading now?
Chasing Down a Dream by Beverly Jenkins.
Where do you most love to read?
Early in the morning, on the back porch, with a pot of coffee and a cool breeze.
Quiet Night at Home or Night on the Town?
Quiet night at home with my husband.
Wine & Cheese or Beer & Pretzels?
Wine and pretzels – or better yet tea and popcorn!
Camping in the Woods or Sunning & Swimming at the Beach?
Beach, please! Hotel & room service, too! LOL!
Comedies or Dramas?
Both – anything but horror/sci-fi!
What’s your favorite season?
Fall – Trees turning, fresh smells and apples!
