Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors because he often makes me look at the world from a different perspective.
I have been an avid reader since grade school, which may be a large part of why I enjoy epic fantasy series like Tolkien, Jordan, and Martin. I do read a variety of fiction, including fantasy, historical, and mystery.
I grew up in Decatur. I graduated from MacArthur and eventually Millikin University with a bachelor’s in management. Currently, I am finishing my Masters in Library and Information Sciences from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. If I look really familiar to local bibliophiles, it may be because I worked for Waldenbooks for 10 years, before inevitably finding my way to the library. You can typically find me at the Reference Desk, answering questions, building and creating displays, or lining up and creating the marketing for library programs.
Libraries are innately subversive institutions, born of the radical notion that every single member of society deserves free, high quality access to knowledge and culture.
