By the way, Ingrid Thoft saw my review and said in a tweet: "I just regained consciousness after reading your amazing review..."

I tried reading Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver, but couldn't get past the first chapter. Maybe in a few years.

I'm currently reading Jump by Steve Harvey. Totally engaging book, it makes me feel I could tackle any problem that crops up!

I started reading "To Kill A Mockingbird." I've seen the movie, but somehow I missed reading the book throughout high school.

Most of my reading these days has to do with my work. I'm looking forward to this summer, when I hope to read the books based on the SYFY channel's "The Expanse." It is amazing.

I've landed a gig writing reviews for Mystery Scene Magazine. I've had 6 reviews (5 printed, 1 online) go up for them already.

Another one just went online today. It is for the new Joseph Kanon thriller "Defectors". You can check out my review HERE!
