Let's go to a place that takes us far far away
When you find that book that distracts you from the boring details of your everyday life, or the pain you have endured. That is what makes the written word so special. Some stories transport us to another time or another place. Our imagination sparks and everything else fades into the background. We spend hours and even days lost in the lives of those who were created. There is nothing quite like it.
Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.

assassination of jfk:
Hello everyone! I am a lover of many things! I have always enjoyed reading books and I have decided to turn my passion into something more. I enjoy a wide range of genres. Please head over to my For Authors page to see which genres I am currently accepting for review. I am currently working on my first novel, which I hope to have finished by the end of this year. I married my best friend in 2016 and I am the mother to three incredible doggies and a feisty kitty.
