Thanks to PghEnigma, I discovered BookCrossing, and I'm thrilled! I love to read and share books, so I'm looking forward to releasing my first book. As a matter of fact, I am a writer working on three fiction projects right now (as well as the writing
that pays the bills) so my goal is to be releasing my own novels someday! (And hopefully, reading good journal entries about them as well...)
As far as my own reading tastes, they are very broad -- ranging from Allende to Dickens to Gaiman to James to Kingsolver to McCall-Smith...mostly fiction, but I enjoy a good biography and as a ghostwriter, believe that everyone has a great story to tell. (If you have a compelling story and need help getting it into print, drop me a line!)
I'm most interested in short story collections right now because I when I'm writing, I can't give enough attention to novels. If you have a good collection to share, write me. My bookshelf should be filling up soon...but it never hurts to ask if I've got something you're looking for.
P.S. Here's a shout-out to Marcel Walker (www.ricochetgraphics.com). Marcel is the illustrator of Righteous Ruby Falcon, my superhero alterego above - and the author of Smoking Guns. Check out his fantastic site and pick up a copy of Smoking Guns:One Shot, because Smoking Guns:Two to Tango is on its way!
