We shouldn't teach great books; we should teach a love of reading. - B. F. Skinner

Not only am I an artist, but I’m an avid reader of fantasy, romantasy, romance, contemporary romance, and YA. I read audiobooks and epubs, occasionally side by side. Often I am reading two books at a time. In 2023, I read 156 books! I've started reveiwing books for NetGalley and GoodReads. Occasionally I get ACR's, here are some of my reviews.
