And I am Judy – Mom to these two beautiful, intelligent women. I am happily retired, so I have LOTS of time to read, knit, crochet, and spend time with my family – and especially my adorable grandsons. I love to read just about anything, even as a child I would read the back of cereal boxes while eating breakfast. I especially enjoy historical fiction, mysteries in the spirit of Agatha Christie and “…long, multilayered novels, set partly in the present and partly in the past, with secrets and mysteries at their core” so well said by Kate Morton who is the master of that genre (whatever it is called). Along with Kate, some of my favorite authors are Sarah Durant, Kate Atkinson, Diane Goodman, Paula Brackston, and recently discovered Eve Chase. Oh, and of course, who doesn’t love Carl Hiassen.
My daughters loved to read at a young age, and both usually fell asleep surrounded by piles of books. I am so happy they agreed to blog with me and I hope that we bring you laughter, information and some ideas for great new books to read. Please share your thoughts with us!
