About Me

Thanks for visiting!

I'm a stay-at-home mom with 4 kids Eleanor (19), Emma (17), Paul (16) and the Tornado (4).  In the corporate world I was a Systems Analyst dealing with computer security.

In addition to books I love food and always love to try new recipes.  I like to think I can do DIY projects but the results are decidedly mixed!  I enjoy TV but have commitment issues with movies.  TV-wise I like pretty much any of the BBC dramas including Sherlock, Whitechapel, and Doctor Who as well mystery shows like Elementary, CSI, NCIS and the spin-offs (though the Los Angeles one is a bit of a guilty pleasure), Criminal Minds, just about all the food competitions on Food Network and The Big Bang Theory.

I've always been a reader and generally have at least 1 book with me.  My Kindle has made life a little easier because I no longer have to worry about finishing a book without another one with me.  I read a wide variety of genres but especially mystery, food memoirs, romance and history.  I also have a tendency to collect cookbooks.  The local library has slowed the accumulation down a little but not much.  Check out my favorites page to get a look at my favorite books! Also, for my review policies and philosophies take a look at my rating explanations page.

  6. Dear Katherine,
    Thank you so much for your lovely review. It truly imparted the essence of Behind Every Great Man. It was so gratifying to hear someone enjoyed the subject which is near and dear to my heart.
    If you ever have the time, I would greatly appreciate it if you would post your review on Amazon.
    All the best,
    Marlene
    P.S. Your four children have a wonderful mother-and feel free to quote me. :)

  7. Himself is a real cosy mystery fan, and has a LOT of opportunity to read but seems stuck on Nora Roberts. I'm thrilled to be able to point him to your lovely blog. Thank you so much for swinging by and taking the trouble to comment - the more I become involved with the book blogging community, the more I encounter lovely people - and you are one of them:)
