Bio: Avid reader hardly does my love of books credit. Addiction. Fanatic. These probably better define my love of reading and books. While I tend toward fiction in all its myriad wonderful varieties, nonfiction books peek my interest from time to time. My preferences for fiction genres would be urban fantasy/urban romance, mysteries and thrillers, many mainstream titles appeal to me as well. I'm 41, live in the Bay Area and work in public relations and marketing although I'm not working at the time. I worked as a journalist for more than six years and in high-tech public relations for more than five and have done freelance editing in between. I'd enjoy the chance to help direct readers to books that will most appeal to them, whether it's what I like or not. MOst important is hat they find selections they will like so they will come back for more.
