Morning everyone! This is my first time here so hopefully I won't flounder too much. A quick summary of me is that I lost my job of 15 years in September (company liquidated) so I decided to try my hand at going professional with my writing. I decided to start with reviewing books. I am currently a book reviewer for SageWoman Magazine and looking for more to add.
I am happily married (27 years) with four dogs, three Pitties and a black lab mix. I love books, motorcycles and racing, Minions, writing, dogs and many other things.
I have a blog on WordPress that I faithfully do every morning but I want to do more. I am an avid reader and always looking for new books to try. I'm looking forward to making friends and hopefully making a little money as well. Cheers!
