I read for many reasons: to learn, to meet a project or challenge I’ve set for myself, and most of all to be taken away. I love books that are epic, books with lots of pages and maps at the beginning. I love heroes and heroines. I like it when there are pictures. The type of book isn’t really important: fantasy, prize-winning literary novels, history and biography, science fiction, superhero comics - I'll read it all. Recent faves are Hild and We Can Fix It, and my all-time favorite book is still The Hobbit.
I’m a lifelong Oregonian, a dedicated librarian, an ex punk-rocker and, most of all, a reader. When I’m not stuck happily in a book, I like to get out and explore this city and the forests surrounding it, over rock and under tree and wherever the roads might take me.
