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 many different genres 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 2 years old and growing bigger and bolder every day. Never thought I’d have a baby at 43!  Here is what they look like Paul is little peanut And Mel Jr the big silly one.

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. I am wanting to return to school to explore the business world. But the real world has made that hard with a high risk pregnancy and now since July 2014 I have been undergoing treatment for breast cancer. AND I AM WINNING THE FIGHT WITH THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL!

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.
