About

Welcome to the Speed of Write Book Review Blog.

 

I decided to start this Web Blog because I love to read and felt that after all these years, I actually had something to say about it. I’ve read really great books, good books, okay books and just plain bad books in the 30 odd years I’ve been reading. I come from a family of readers (well ¾ of us), so it just came naturally. Most of my friends were readers and I eventually married a reader, Roger. My brother, Steve, was my first big influence. I don’t remember how old I was when he gave me my first book to read, A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. Le Guin, but I was still in grade school, so I’ll say around 10 years old. That was followed by J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and eventually The Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

Over the years, my interests broadened, but I’m still drawn primarily to fantasy stories, be it vampire, werewolf or witches. I also enjoy action/adventure, mystery, paranormal, romance and spirituality. You’ll get to know some of my favorite authors as this blog progresses and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
