About

Greetings!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

My name is Jenn.  I am a 30-something-year-old lover of books.  Even though I’m a bit of a Science-Nerd, my formal education is in Biochemistry, I have always had a strong affection for the written word.  I especially enjoy early 20th Century English Literature.  My favorite authors from the era include:  H.G. Wells, Henry James, Virginia Woolf, and Jack London.

I believe my love of reading comes from mother.  While growing up I can hardly remember a time when she did not have a book in her hands.  Books were always something she encouraged and never limited.  Unlike movies, which can sometimes contain disturbing images for young children, non-picture books were never censored in our home.  This household rule allowed me to experience great writers such as, Stephen King, early on.

I also would like to attribute my reading habits to my 5th grade English teacher, Mrs. Linton.  Mrs. Linton opened my eyes to a whole other word outside of Modern Pop-Fiction.  Because of her guidance, I read my first James Joyce at just 12 years old.

Currently I read from many different genres, my favorites being Crime Fiction, Thrillers, Mystery, and Horror.  I branch out often to include Chick-Lit, Contemporary Literature, and Modern Fiction.  I enjoy discovering new authors, and am always open to reading a hidden gem.  If you have any suggestions, please feel free to send me message.

My other hobbies include:  writing, journaling, crocheting, gardening, photography, and music.  Currently I reside in a small suburb of Kansas City with my husband, daughter, and two fur babies.

Truly,
