About me

I am a Historical Fiction Addict like you =) I am a wife, mom of two youngsters, and I work full-time as a bookkeeper near Dallas, Texas. I do hoard many books at home, too.
I write reviews at, which has been online since December 2008. You can find 186 book reviews online (and counting!), primarily HF. I also enjoy historical Christian fiction and historical romance. My favorite HF novel incorporates romance, inspiration, history and even a dash of mystery.

The reviews I have written for the HNS can be found at

You can also find me co-hosting the Historical Fiction Connection site at, where we invite all of you to guest blog for us.

Some of my favorite authors include Elizabeth Chadwick, Sharon Kay Penman and Georgette Heyer. I am pleased to say I have finally gone a month without reading something Tudor related.

Someday I’ll be a writer, but that is still a pipe dream!
