The Pesky Librarian


As the name suggests, I am a librarian who likes to cause a bit of mischief. I actually run a number of public sessions about ePublishing using online tools like Smashwords for other budding authors so this is like a demo page, inspiring others to join this community.

One day I might write creatively; but at the moment, I am enjoying writing reviews in eBook format based on things that I am reading/viewing from the library.

In my spare time I like to read graphic novels, listen and make music, travel, watch American football, sleep in and work on my best Grumpy Cat impersonation.

I haven't won any awards...except "Most Pesky Librarian" which is why the name has stuck with me.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I really enjoy jamming out on my guitar, listening to music, reading graphic novels. My day job is an adult librarian which I absolutely love.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
In a word, no. But I really do enjoy the world of reading. It's a fantastic way to escape or delve into reality depending on the reasons and purposes you choose to read. As an ex-teacher, literacy is so important to me. I couldn't imagine not being able to read.
