Even before I learned how to read, I loved to look at my mom's books and imagine what stories were inside. Then I went to school, learned the alphabet, and ever since I've been obsessed with reading and writing. In 2005 I started channeling my writing into blogging, and in 2009 I began book blogging here at Truth, Beauty, Freedom, and Books.
Currently I'm a freelance writer and regular contributor to Book Riot, Food Riot, the Pueblo PULP, Top5.com, OpposingViews.com, History Colorado, and Femnista, among other publications.
What I read: My favorite books are romantic and deal with themes of people who are separated from everything they find comfortable or safe in life. This is definitely a theme found in Jane Eyre, my favorite novel. I've also always been intrigued by the occult and supernatural, and enjoy paranormal romance and sci-fi.
I read non-fiction books related to art and antiquities; and novels in the romance, mystery, and fantasy genres. I do read some historical and general fiction, but they must have strong romantic elements in them. I also read graphic novels and some erotica. For more about my review policies, please see my full disclosure page.
About Truth, Beauty, Freedom, & Books: The purpose of this blog is to entertain my fellow readers, discuss books I liked and didn't like (and why), critically analyze books and movies, and start discussions about art, publishing, and cultural issues. I only very occasionally talk about my personal life here.
My long-term goal for Truth, Beauty, Freedom, & Books is to promote romanticism, critical engagement with texts, and free thinking.
