Unlike many other authors I chat with and read about, I did not get introduced to M&B romances by my mother. I cannot even remember how I did get to dabble in them and confess my affair was brief. I love historical fiction, women’s fiction and rural memoir mostly, and I can thank my mother for the books about animals and the struggles of life that she did pass on to me like Black Beauty, Watership Down, I Can Jump Puddles and Call of the Wild.
My father’s Readers Digest condensed collection also had me dabbling further into a range of genres which led me to explore further the unabridged versions of some favourites. Now I work in a library, I get to see and feel all the new releases that come in. And love talking about readers’ favourites with them.
