Short version.....I'm a 30-something Chicago native that has been transplanted in Middle of Nowhere, Michigan. I should also mention that I'm a major book junkie, both physical and e-books. Previously I was a veterinary technician and my love of animals made it the perfect job for me. I had to make a career change due to the move and I'm now a pharmacy technician with a well known national pharmacy. In January of 2011 I married an absolutely amazing man. Later that same month I was diagnosed with cancer and began the fight of my life. I'm still fighting but I'm winning! Things I like to do besides read? I am a rabid, oops I mean avid, hockey fan. Go Blackhawks!! No matter where I move I will remain loyal to the Hawks! I also love to hike and be outside in general. I am really interested in photography although admittedly I'm not very good at it. And spending time with my two nephews is an absolute must. :) I've also got 6 furry kids and each of them is my reading companion at some point but none more than my cat Booker.
