About me...I live out in the country in a small town that's actually considered a ghost town. I love reading (of course), working on scrapbooks, crocheting, collecting vintage photographs, & playing with my 2 nieces & 3 nephews.

I read just about anything. I like reading new authors & won't put down a book just because I don't like it. Curiosity gets the best of me & I have to see how every book ends. Right now, my favorite authors are Mary Higgins Clark, Megan Crane, John Saul, & J.K. Rowling (like I said, I'll read anything!).
