About My Library
My Physical Library: Small but beloved. I removed my clothes from my closet and put in bookshelves, but there ain't much room, so I only keep the ones I KNOW I'm going to want again. (I found something else for my clothes, fear not.) If I really like a book I tend to lend it out. With the obvious consequences. But how not to share such wealth?

My LT Library: Doesn't contain all of the books in my physical library. (Yet, anyway.) Nor all the books I've read. One or two at a time, I add books I enjoy that I am currently reading or once read. I love the chance to remember each one again, and to try to match it up with the cover I knew it by, though that isn't always possible. It's a pleasure just to sit and think about books.

My Rating System: Purely subjective. I am not telling you how valuable a piece of literature is to the common weal, but how valuable it has been to me. I dislike some perfectly good books--it just isn't my crank they're turning. And I like some pretty crappy ones. Though in general I prefer a good book to a crappy one, of course.
About Me
A slow but savouring reader. I sometimes read so slowly I end up with cobwebs on my face, as per my photo...

A slow, savouring writer, too. (It tastes _goooood_.)

I write speculative fiction, including science fiction, slipstream, magical realism. But I read all kinds of things.

Non-booky things...I live with cats, and I love them. I don't live with other animals, but I love them, too. People are among the many interesting creatures on earth; not sorry I ended up being one.

Though I'm not THAT old, I've now lived long enough to have my roots in history. That's quite an interesting experience. There are so many things I grew up with that my nephews and nieces can't even imagine. The changes have been slow and subtle, the most important ones. I miss some of the things I didn't even like when I was little, or didn't think I liked. And I appreciate many of the things that replaced them. Change. Not good, not bad. Interesting.

As a writer, I’ve been influenced most notably by: Ursula K. Le Guin, Eileen Kernaghan, Margaret Laurence, Barbara Pym, Farley Mowat, Victor Hugo, Dr. Seuss, Hinterland's Who's Who, the Catholic liturgy, Frank Zappa, and National Geographic. I am also a great admirer of Dav Pilkey, especially his Captain Underpants series, but I can’t honestly say he has influenced my writing.
