I am a Technical Communicator in the Toronto area, working for a technology company. I have enjoyed working with facts for a long time, but I am looking forward to recording my opinions in this blog.
I read many types of fiction, with some focus on Fantasy. I do love Elves and Dwarves. I am not interested in Westerns or Romance, and I have nothing but contempt for the current crop of vampire and werewolf Fantasy novels that are really just bad romance. Sci Fi, Mystery, and Adventure are welcome. If a book makes me chuckle, it is a hit.
I don’t buy books, I troll my local library shelves. I am unlikely to get my hands on current bestsellers but I do go first to the New Books shelf. If a story is not capturing my interest, I will abandon it quickly. If I read something I really enjoy, I will tend to focus on that author until I have read everything by them on the library shelf.
I have a comic book loving husband and an athletic son (aged 9). Both spend too much time with PC and video games, but that leaves me free to read.
I hope you enjoy my informal critiques. Recommendations welcome.
p.s. Thanks Ann for your inspiration.
