I love good characters! Fiction or non-fiction, a good book is something that grabs hold and takes me away from the everyday. There's a wide variety in my ever growing stack of books. My reading tastes vary, but personal favorites include: LGBT fiction and non fiction, mysteries, carnival tales, rock and roll memoirs, and cookbooks. Favorite books of all time? Look no further than Catherine Dunn's Geek Love and the mysteries of Louise Penny.
