"Courage is not the absence of fear. Courage is the judgment that there is something more important than fear." I love books. Always have. I read as many as I can, but invariably i end up having too many unread books in my library. I buy more than I can read - mostly fiction - meaning well to read them one day. I sometimes tell myself that they aren't trophies to be put on show and feel a little guilty. Thereafter, I normally end up starting (& finishing too!) a new novel the very next weekend. Always been in love with the written word. Thanks to NaNoWriMo, I discovered, 3 years ago, that I CAN write. :-) And since then have rambled on with something or other. Currently working on my epic novel, my work of art, titled The Second Universe. As the name suggests its essentially a science fiction, but I try hard to limit the jargon and maybe make it appeal to the mainstream reader. I love to read (and sometimes re-read) Isaac Asimov and Michael Crichton. I also love to read (but maybe not re-read) Robert Ludlum, James Rollins, Jeffery Deaver, Clive Cussler, Patricia Cornwell, James Scott Card, Fredrick Forsyth, etc., etc. and of course P G Wodehouse.
