I was born in the Bronx where I obtained a Masters in Library Science. My thesis topic was the Impact of Science Fiction Reading by High School Seniors on Standardized Reading Scores. I met my spouse Stan when he read my palm in a Bronx outdoor cafe.

After being married for seven months, we moved to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania where I worked in the local bookstore and provided some limited book reviewing services. I had my only child born there. Later, we moved to Massachusetts where I worked in a small used bookstore that catered to fans of horror and science fiction. Ultimately we moved to Georgia where we currently live. I have worked with the library and found an acquisition job in a bookstore. I also watched my book reviewing career begin to take shape. I take immense pleasure informing other readers about newcomers or unknown authors who have written superb novels.
