Mysterious, unusual, organic, vivid, well-written, otherworldly - those are all words that would draw me in if I saw them on a book jacket. I enjoy reading fiction, SF, and fantasy, as well as nonfiction related to nature, art, and science, and books with interesting illustrations. I spent many years working with children’s books and still enjoy reading picture books.
When I’m not reading I like to spend my time exploring dramatic landscapes, observing hummingbirds, and attempting to cultivate any plant that looks like it might have sprung from the pages of the Voynich manuscript.
SF and fantasy that either examines gender, or has LGBTQIA+ characters, for someone who liked Gideon the Ninth, In Other Lands, and House of the Spirits.
