Greetings from Costa Rica!
Last updated: July 24, 2020

I am originally from Costa Rica, but I'm living in Canada at the moment.
I haven't been very active because I have been battling cancer for the past 7 years. I do not know what the future holds, but I gain some comfort in knowing that I have spread the joy of reading. Thanks to Bookcrossing my books will bring that joy to many other people.
