In 2016 I retired after 30 years in banking and IT, but soon after found a new niche as the director of the Sidney Public Library. Being around book lovers and books is a dream job! Outside of library hours, I read. A lot. I also I review what I love so that others might find something great to read. I publish my reviews on the blog Whiskey With My Book.
I grew up in Nebraska, but I’ve lived in this area since I married my husband Ray in 1998. We live in Anderson with dogs Kellen and Becket, and maybe a few cats.
The public library in Beatrice, Nebraska is the first library I loved. A Carnegie library, it seemed gigantic to me as a child. So many books, not enough time! There, I discovered science fiction when I read The Enchantress from the Stars by Sylvia Engdahl. While scifi is my favorite I enjoy all sorts of escapist fiction.
