I joined hubpages to practice my writing and work with a community of other writers. I am saddened to see the demise of the book as we know it, but am pleased to see formats such as hubpages rise from the ashes.

I've been a librarian for most of my life and currently work for a California Correctional Facility in the Central Valley. I enjoy the opportunity to discuss literature with the residents there and learn something new everyday.

I am interested in poetry, sudden fiction and essays on various topics. Some of my favorite writers are Sharon Olds, John Irving, Susan Orlean, Malcolm Gladwell. I try to keep my reading materials as eclectic as possible as I do not like to get bogged down to one particular genre. As I get older though, I find that non-fiction has much more appeal than novels did to me when I younger and for some reason this makes me sad.

Please feel free to contact me and share your observations and interests as far as letters and writing are concerned. I enjoy hearing from others who appreciate the craft and miss the workshop settings and intensity of my undergraduate years immensely.
