How long have you worked here?
Where did you grow up?
Pensacola FL and Nashville, TN
What is your favorite part of your job?
I love most aspects of my job but helping a reluctant reader find that one book that acts as a spark to ignite a passion for reading is my life’s goal. Also helping girls discover that dragons are awesome and Sci-Fi/Fantasy is not just for the boys.
What hobbies and past times do you enjoy outside of work?
I’m a homeschooling mama to two sweet girls. We love learning, exploring the world around us and arts and crafts. Outside of that I love to sew and quilt, spend time with my friends and cook. I routinely sacrifice at least a night of sleep a week to read “just one more chapter” and of course end up with the book finished at 3am. Good thing I’m addicted to coffee!
Favorite movie or television show?
I rarely watch anything but I have been enjoying the occasional episode of Merlin on Netflix.
Favorite book, author, or genre??
This list is long and random! I guess I’m what you would call an eclectic reader. My primary genre is Fantasy with a dash of Sci Fi but I also love Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, Rebecca…. Gothic Romances. I enjoy classics. I read A LOT of Juvenile Fiction and absolutely adore anything related to the Arthurian Legend. Right now I’m also reading quite a bit on education styles, particularly Classical methods.
Anything else you would like to share?
I collect tea cups and tea pots. I have a pet parrot named Sami. I recently started taking tap dancing lessons which has always been a dream of mine. I believe in the power of red lipstick, dark chocolate and coffee. If you want to live a good life follow the wisdom of Yoda, Mr. Miyagi, Professor Dumbledore and Jesus. I’m also very random.
