fan of the month

This is the 8th month in the Year of the Reader!

If you are a fan of my blog I know you are a READER!

So this year I will be randomly choosing a

Fan of the Month!

Not only will this help me get to know you better but it will help the readers get to know each other better. You may find someone that likes the same authors, books, genres you do. You may “meet” someone that enjoys the same hobbies or is in a similar line of work. They may be someone you want to follow on Social Media.

I am excited to introduce of August’s Fan of the Month!

Tell us a little bit about yourself – I am the Assistant Director of Nursing and Quality Assurance Coordinator at a long term/Rehab/assisted living facility. I have been a registered nurse for 21 years and at my present job for the past 16 years. I am happily married and have a 14 year old son. I love animals and live on a farm. I love gardening, flowers, books, music from the 1920’s through the 1970’s, spending time with my family, painting and, did I mention reading. I love cozy mysteries but I will read anything- mystery, suspense, YA, romance, thriller, paranormal, fantasy, science fiction, Christian, etc.

Where is your favorite place to curl up and Escape into a Good Book? My absolute favorite place to read (when the weather is nice) is sitting by the creek under the shade free-kick if the weather doesn’t cooperate, I’ll sit in my “reading room” in my grandmother’s favorite chair.

Do you have a favorite author, book or series?
My favorite book is “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee- while in elementary school, we were required to read it as part of my gifted English class and it taught me a lot about myself, my beliefs, and my own family.
My favorite series are: The Coffeehouse Mystery Series by Cleo Coyle, The Meg Langslow Mystery Series by Donna Andrews, Hannah Swenson Series by Joanne Fluke, and The Novel Idea Series by Lucy Arlington.

What fictional character do you wish was real so you could meet them in person? If I had to pick a favorite fictional character that I would love to meet, it would have to Hannah Swenson from Joanne Fluke’s series- I fell in love with this series years ago and have all of the books in the series thus far (paperbacks or hardback, not e-books).

How long have you been a Fan of Escape with Dollycas into a Good Book? I have been a fan of the Escape with Dollycas blog since I stumbled upon it 3-4 years ago and have been following by email ever since. My favorite part of the blog would have to be the introduction to new cozy mystery series as well as the wonderful reviews. I will often seek out the books in a new series (new to me at least) based on the review posted on the Escape with Dollycas blog.
