I am an event manager and I spend my time either working, reading or riding. I don't know what I would have done through my life without books and I can't imagine how people today can live without the pleasure of losing themselves in a damn good read. Books to me are my life, they take me to different worlds, they create passions, they make me laugh and they make me cry.
Much as I love the worlds of film and theatre, nothing can quite measure up to the world created by a book, it is such a PERSONAL communication between the author and the reader, all is created in the imaginations of the describer and the decscribee.
I love worlds created for me that I can touch and smell.
I am an inveterate bookworm and will read almost anything I can get my hands on. My prefered genres are Sci fi, fantasy, (but not with blooming elves with bell clear voices, except Tolkein, he's allowed. Lol) horror and adventure.
But I do read stuff out of these genres quite often if they grab me.
I'm not really much of a writer, I annoy myself, my dialogue is never quite how it sounds in my head and my prose is too purple. BUT I know how it should go, hence the reason I annoy myself, lol.
I'm very happy to read anything anyone asks me to, generally I'll give a shortish comment, but if anyone wants a more in depth look am happy to do that as well if asked.
