About me

Industry Publishing
Occupation Editor
Location Ashland, Oregon, United States
Introduction I am the editor for Through the Looking Glass Book Review. I started this website what seems like eons ago and now the site contains four thousand reviews. The reason why I started this site was because I wanted to provide parents, teachers, homeschoolers, and others with a free source of children's book reviews and other related information. I only write positive reviews. If I don't like a book I am sent I don't review it. On the personal side, I am the daughter of journalists and authors and though I did study zoology, I am now firmly entrenched, happily so, in the children's literature world. I live in lovely Ashland, Oregon with my husband, my daughter Elise, two dogs, two elderly cats, and two young Siamese cats who are a pair of holy terrors. When I am not working I like to ride my bike, go for walks, ski, garden, and knit.
Interests Reading, skiing, going for long walks, knitting, working in the garden
Favorite Movies Fried Green Tomatoes, Steel Magnolias, The Harry Potter Movies, Lord of the Rings, Field of Dreams
Favorite Music Celtic Music of all kinds, Classical, U2, Fleetwood Mac, Bruce Springsteen, Sarah Maclachlan, Movie Soundtracks.

What would you wear for camouflage if you were hiding in a gingerbread house?

I would wear a large M and M on my head, a dress made of gummi bears, and chocolate truffle shoes
