Extended Profile

Please note -- I have recently moved from NM to FL, if you happen to have a NM address, check with me for a current one.

Hello fellow book junkies! I am an avid reader, and a huge horror fan. My reading tastes are varied, but most of the time, you will find me reading horror, LGBTQ fiction, and bizzaro/weird fiction.

I prefer to wild release my books after reading them, however from time to time the RABCK bug strikes and I just can't help myself. Also, if you have a good enough trade offer, I may be tempted.

A little about me, I'm 39, live in the Tampa Bay, Florida area. CruiseAddict is the love of my life, and, after over 18 years together, we recently became married (and are working to change the laws so our marriage can be recognized). We have a beautiful 8 year old daughter, 2 cats, 3 dogs, a bunch of houseplants (another of my hobbies), and a few thousand books. Bookcrossing is a family affair for us, aside from my partner and daughter, my mother is a 'crosser, as is my niece.

I'm all over the web, but most notably, you can connect with me at the following places:

And, if you have a sense of humor, check out my Runaway Bride Releases at the 7-11 where she made her 9-1-1 call!

My FIRST and LATEST releases!

I have released books in the following states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and the District Of Columbia. Outside of the United States, I have released books in Belize, Honduras, Mexico, and on cruise ships in the Gulf Of Mexico and the Pacific Ocean.


I love a good BC event or project! I have organized three biggies in my area so far.

In October 2007, we released hundreds of books at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta! See catches here!

In November 2007, we gave nearly 100 books to 4 Support, a local charity that distributes items to children in area hospitals. And in September 2008 I gave them an additional 169 books! I will be collecting and giving books to them on a semi-regular basis now.

In June 2008, we set up a Bookcrossing table at Albuquerque Pridefest! Had a great time, and managed to give away 173 books! See journal entries here!
