In my life, I have won an inheritance and lost it. I have travelled through time and to the other side of the world. I have solved murders, experienced storybook romances, and discovered alternate universes. Which is to say: In my life, I have read. Academic tomes and romance novels, murder mysteries and classic literary fiction. Newspapers, magazines, scholarly journals, and lots of product labels (but rarely user manuals).
Currently, I’m endeavoring to read all the English translations of Homer’s The Odyssey. Let’s see how far I get.
I hold a PhD from New York University in English Education and a MA in English Literature. As a consultant, I work with readers and writers and speak and write about books and reading (please click here for more information).
