Hi I’m Maryann. I am retired and have lived in West Palm Beach, Florida for 5 years. I can say I have come full circle. I started in New York , spent a few years in New Hampshire and was uprooted again and lived in California for a very long time. Now I am back on the east coast again!
I’ve always liked to read, I remember going to the library and reading the Doctor Dolittle books by Hugh Lofting. Much later on became a big fan of Stephen King.
When I came to Florida, I started riding shotgun with my niece to Tampa. She was an RN and was working on getting her degree for Nurse Practitioner. I would read her medical books and review notes to her while we traveled. We also got hooked on Game of Thrones and listened to it on audio CDs. The medical book reading came in handy because the first M/M book I read in 2011 was Zero to the Bone by Jane Seville. The doctor had to repair a gun shot wound and I actually understood the medical terms. This was the book that got me started on M/M genre.
Seen a lot of Florida since I’ve been here, of course Tampa, Orlando, Naples, Miami and the Keys. Took my first cruise in December to the Caribbean. It was great!
I love my Kindle and Audible! Have both apps on my ipod, ipad, and MAC. So there is never an excuse not to be listening or reading.
I was interested in editing books but when I saw Lisa’s request for reviewing books, I thought I would give it a shot. I have hopes to do a good job for The Novel Approach. Happy reviewing everyone!
