  1. "I love historical fiction, especially biographical fiction, and narrative nonfiction. Reading fictional stories about real-life historical figures is probably my favorite, although that often leads to adding a biography or two to my ‘to read’ list. That’s fine with me since I like biographies too. Poetry is my other passion. My favorite poets tend to draw upon nature and the use of imagery to evoke emotions."

  1. “I like literary fiction. I like writing that is poetic. I like writers who I sense struggle to find the perfect word. I like writers who make me see the world differently; whether they have a talent for imaginative description, or have their characters express insights that feel absolutely spot on, but brand new to me. I like fiction that makes me question existing ideas. I also love writers who have a brilliant knack for making things funny. Besides fiction, the humorous-yet-poignant essay is one of my favorite things to read."
