I have spent my entire life in love with books. It started as a child; reading Judy Blume and John Steinbeck, “A Ring of Endless Light”, etc. My real introduction to literature was during my senior year though. That’s when I met James Joyce. I wanted to write like him, I wanted to be published and spend my life painting portraits of how I saw the world through words.
I studied English literature in college where I found my true passion to be more poetic. John Donne and George Herbert in the 17th Century stretched my brain out like bubble gum; leaving me quivering in the center. William Wordsworth, Coleridge’s The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, and my all time favorite poet- Keats changed the way I viewed my own existence.
Long story short, I am a lover of books, history and stories. I find anything that ties us to the past, moves us into the future.
Feel free to join me, and my newest passion- Old Wethersfield Books- together we can enjoy the past, create for the future and share in the love of great minds.
