Please add anything you would like the world of BFW's readers to know about YOU: From the time I learned to read I have been a voracious reader. I read everything I could get my hands on. When I was in elementary school I started reading my mother’s college texts and remember reading The Stranger by Albert Camus one summer in the long grass of the field behind our house. Once I get hooked by a good book, I pick it up every spare minute that I can find.
