My two favorite things in the whole wide world: traveling + books. I write, I edit, but first and foremost I am a reader. I fell in love with the novels of Toni Morrison when I was only in middle school, and since then I've been a sucker for an intelligent, yet powerful story. I've travelled many places, but still have many more to see. I've been to many beautiful spots in Europe, like Italy, Spain and Croatia, but I've yet to visit Russia and Germany (they're on my bucket list). Next on my wish list is Australia and the Kiwi Island. Maybe South America next...the world? It might be too much to tackle, but I'll take it one country at a time (with a book by side of course)--while my health and wallet...and employer...allow it :D.
