About Me:
I am often asked how I determine which books I am going to read and review. I get most of the catalogs from the major publishers and request review copies of books I have an interest in reading, and there are many of interest. I read several review sources on a regular basis.

I will read just about anything I can get my hands on, with the emphasis on fiction, forensics and true crime. I have a great deal of respect and a love for new authors, mostly because when I find an author I like, I tend to read everything they have ever written, which more or less forces me to find new authors.

Crime fiction comprises probably half of my reading time and is my guilty pleasure, but I also read chick-lit, contemporary fiction, tons of forensics, erotica, memoirs, compelling non-fiction, and works of horror, fantasy and sci-fi.

I am a voracious reader, and read several books each week. I even am a member of many of the book clubs.

I enjoy reading books, reviewing books, & promoting authors - especially new authors.

Thanks for befriending me! I checked out your website and it looks like there's some great stuff there. If you're ever interested in doing an interview with me, let me know.

I've been thinking a lot about public health or pyschiatric nursing. I start school either in august or january, depending on which semester I get accepted into so I guess I'll have a better idea once I actually start classes and clinicals. My sister is a social worker who specializes in geriatrics-she prefers Alzheimers patients, advanced cases with behavioral problems. I just know I couldn't do what she does.

Thanks for the chance to pop my head into your world. I'm looking for some feedback on my first novel and would be bowled over if you could take a look. Let me know if you have any time. If not, I understand. I barely remember to breathe some days in the hectic London world. Best, Matt

Well after 10 months of semi-retirement to take care of my new grandson, it is back off to no retirement and back to work full time. Wow, that was the quickest 10 months of my life. Well I am off to work, hope everyone has a great day!

Hi QBR,
Thanks for the invitation. Amazing how I read about this site a few days ago, eventually got round to signing up, and suddenly have lots of new friends (and even less time to write because I'm reading their blogs and chats). I'm obviously an avid collector of displacement activities.

Jefferson Bass (Dr. Bill Bass & Jon Jefferson) have a new book coming out in September called "Beyond The Body Farm" A Legendary Bone Detective Explores Murders, Mysteries, And The Revolution In Forensic Science. I cannot wait.
