I worked at the World's Biggest Bookstore in Toronto for 10 years, until it closed in 2014. During my time there I planned themed endcaps and did author interview displays.
From September 2010 until December 2012 I contributed book reviews and New Author Spotlight posts to SF Signal. From August 2013 to May 2014 I did a Recommended Reading with Professionals column there once or twice a month.
I've got a BA in Medieval History from the University of Toronto.
I'm a long time crafter and have been card crafting for a few years, first using photos I took and now using lots of stamps and fun embellishments.

Book Review Requests
***Closed to Review Requests***
I'm taking this year (2012) to read the books on my shelves I haven't read, and to lower my tbr pile. If I'd agreed to review a book for you I will, in the usual time frame (mentioned below), otherwise, I'm closed to review requests for the year - or until this message disappears.
