McDonald and David Morrell have written some of my all time favorites! I first started coming to the store to attend author signings and got caught up in all things Poisoned Pen. For a book lover, this store is like cat nip to a cat. My Mom was an English teacher and our family did not have a television until I was in high school so reading was the family hobby. My parents — when I was a teen — bribed me to start reading the classics by paying me a quarter for every classic read.
I started out in Minnesota and lived in other northern states, as well. After college, I got married, had kids, and tried to master the art of living on nine acres of land. I learned the challenges and humor in planting my first vegetable garden, failed to tame a temperamental Shetland pony named Flicka, but was successful in repairing an electric fence without harm to self or others.
My careers have included retail, print production, magazine layout and typesetting. All of which led me to a book addiction, thus, the bookstore.
