I’m an avid reader (of course), but also a mom (to one son and 2 dogs) and a wife (to a wonderful supportive man who is also an avid reader). I have a Master’s degree in Translation from Spanish to English, and enjoy reading Spanish-language literature as well as English-. I am a fiber artist and have specialized at different times in weaving, spinning, knitting, cross-stitch, quilting, and felt piecing among other handicrafts. I love to travel, both within and outside the United States, and have visited 49 of the 50 states plus Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C. (Alaska is the only state I’m missing.) I grew up in upstate New York, have also lived in West Virginia, Missouri, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, and currently reside in Los Angeles, California.
