I love reading. Books have always been a part of my environment and my life. I taught English Literature for many years and my favorite part was watching students find their voice in writing. I edited at Weekly Reader for about a year prior to taking time off to have children. They are now 7 and 8 years old, writing their own stories, and reading as many books as their mama!
I manage an independent bookstore in Chappaqua, New York called Scattered Books, which is my second home. I travel often with my family, and friends, and always make sure I find the bookstores wherever we go.
“Books are the treasured wealth of the world and the fit inheritance of generations and nations.” ~ Henry David Thoreau, “Walden”
