I love BOOKS, my day job as a librarian, my early morning and weekend job as a writer. I grew up in Mississippi and now live in Texas with my husband, three children, and 7 grandchildren. When I was young, my favorite place to read was a porch swing. It's called PORCH READING. This photo reminds me of lemonade, family, friends, and a cool Mississippi breeze. My favorite chapter books were the Nancy Drew series. I wanted to grow up, drive a convertible, and solve mysteries just like Nancy.
