"There's no such thing as 'one, true way'; the only answers worth having are the ones you find for yourself; leave the world better than you found it. Love, freedom, and the chance to do some good -- they're the things worth living and dying for, and if you aren't willing to die for the things worth living for, you might as well turn in your membership in the human race." [Mercedes Lackey]
An avid reader from a young age, I was raised on a reading diet of Ruth Manning Sanders, myths and legends, and some of the great New Zealand authors like Joy Cowley and Maurice Gee. My shelves at home are crowded with the books by Anne McCaffrey, Mercedes Lackey, Wen Spencer, and Tamora Pierce (to name a few) but I also borrow extensively from work where I can easily get my fix of James Patterson and Tess Gerritsen - along with my guilt pleasure of teen fiction.
I have worked around books for a very long time, enjoy reading and looking at those books that have awesome colour pages including clothing, craft and sometimes even cookbooks.
