Reading is one of my greatest pleasures and has been since I was very young- I find it therapeutic, transformative and comforting. You will always find me with a book (or two) on the go, and I am captivated by the endless array of stories and guidance that exist in book form- whether fiction or non-fiction. As a writer, creative spirit and sensitive soul, there have been several books throughout my adult life that left a significant impression on me and I would recommend them to like-minded individuals in a heartbeat. The library list below contains a selection of writing that has opened my mind, shaped my perspectives on life and stayed with me over the years- click each link or photo to learn more.
