Introduction Armed with a library card and the new skill of reading, I became a lover of books before I could discover boys! I've never looked back. Today, I'm a PR & marketing professional for authors and their books with a virtual book touring company. I'm known as The Bookish Dame.
Interests Reading in nearly every genre, though I tend to favor novels, steampunk, fantasy/sci-fy YA, memoirs, and classics. I also enjoy fine needlework, painting, knitting, quilting and jewelry-making.
Favorite Movies #1Gone With The Wind, The Prince of Tides, Jezebel, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, Wings of the Dove, The Golden Bowl, (any of Henry James' novels to movie), A Farewell to Arms, Out of Africa, Legends of the Fall, and The French Lieutinent's Woman. Also love the "Focker Family" Movies with DeNiro, Hoffman and Stiller. LOL
Favorite Music All kinds of music from mountian-top dulcimers & fiddles to symphonies and soul. Love Adele...
