I am a self-confessed bookworm and post reviews of many of the books I read on this site. Find me also on Goodreads, Amazon and Pinterest. I am a reviewer on The Book Review Directory, The IndieView and NetGalley. I also review for Strangebooks UK Publisher. I do not receive monetary compensation for my reviews. Some but not all of the books I review are provided by the author or publisher. I read across genres, love narrative non-fiction, biographies, history and many other types of writing.

Reading is a fulfilling part of my life, but like police procedurals being one section within the genre of crime fiction, reading is just one of my many interests. For as long as I can remember, trains, planes, and the military have fascinated me. My grandfather on my father’s side was a fireman and then an engineer for Atlanta and West Point Railroad became part of the Seaboard Coast Line Railroad and ultimately CSX Transportation until he retired. As for planes, I love to fly and spent much of my girlhood at the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport when it was the William B. Hartsfield Atlanta Airport looking out at the planes at the gates while waiting for my cousin Mike to arrive from Virginia. And the military? I suppose my fascination derives (and still does, albeit with my husband) from watching old WWII movies with my father. Favorite movies or series featuring the military include Band of Brothers, Full Metal Jacket, Saving Private Ryan and American Sniper.
