Matilda Is a nickname my grandmother used to call me. When I hear it I think of her; she was a very special person in my life.
Reading is a part of me just like breathing. I have always had a book in my hands, now an e-reader as well. Being a reviewer has broadened my reading spectrum; reading things I never thought I would. As well as opening the door to more authors and e-books.
I have tried many different genres, right now my favorite is romantic suspense and inspirational. It changes depending on my moods. I have met many new authors along the way some of my favorites are Debbie MaComber, Kristin Hannah, Kristina McMorris and many more.
A few random things about me:
I have been with my husband Mel sine 1990 married since 1992 we have a 20-something son Mel Jr and a beautiful miracle baby after 20 yrs; Paul William! who is now 5 months growing bigger every day. Never thought I'd be having a baby at 43! Here is what they look like Paul is little peanut And Mel Jr the big guy with beautiful girlfriend Aubry.
I have had many jobs over the years from cashier to packaging snack items to even processing medical prescriptions. I have an Associate's degree in Business management. Although I have been among the ranks of the unemployed the past year or so I am wanting to return to school to explore the business world.
I have spent much of the past few years traveling much of the east coast with Mel, who is a truck driver. Although it is not the most glamorous way to travel I have met many wonderful and strange people along the way and it makes for lots of great reading time too. But the birth of Paul and a job change by Mel there will be no travels in the immediate future.
Besides reading I like to do crafts, I have tried my hand at painting ceramics, cross-stitch, needlepoint, even a bit of crocheting.
Although I haven't done much cooking lately. I enjoy collecting new recipes and watching the Food Network.
Overall I am a simple person which is why I crave the need to read to add the things I lack in reality to spice up my otherwise simple life.
