I am a book blogger and the owner of Bookworm Blues - a popular speculative fiction book review website. I have been a compulsive reader all my life. Early on found my reading niche in the fantastic genre of Speculative Fiction. I blame my active imagination for the hobbies that threaten to consume my life. A freelance writer and photographer, world traveler and recent college graduate, I'm also a new mother, cancer fighter & survivor. In my ideal world, I'd do nothing but drink lots of tea and read from a never ending pile of speculative fiction books. Respected as a reviewer, I receive book ARCs from all of the major and most minor publishers in science fiction and fantasy. But given my love of stories, I've always wanted to be a part of the creative process, and editing is my first step in that direction.

My Five Favorite Audiobooks (so far)

I’ve recently started listening to audiobooks. I’ve discovered that I really enjoy them… well, some of them. Others, not so much.

The Self-Published Blogger Challenge

First things first, it’s not me hosting this. It’s author Mark Lawrence. This weekend, Mark contacted me and bounced his idea off of me regarding this self-published author/blogger challenge. We toyed with it back and forth a bit, and he, of course, perfected it. I volunteered right off the bat because it sounded like an …

Rapid Reviews – The Pass/Fail Version

I’m behind on my reviewing, so in an effort to catch up I’m going to do a few rapid reviews of random books that I haven’t had time to talk about yet. Remember in college when you could take a class and opt to either pass or fail it? No letter grade, just pass/fail. Well, …
