I enjoy many types of literature, and some things that are fun to read, but hardly intellectual.

I write a story online, Babblestory, and I have put up a few poems I wrote years ago at my business website Poetry.

My favorite genre to read is science fiction, though sometimes I prefer pure fantasy, and often historical fiction catches my eye. I enjoy reading (and re-reading) children’s books as well.

In unsorted order, my favorite authors include:

Piers Anthony
JRR Tolkien
Louisa May Alcott
Kathryn Kenny (Trixie Belden author)
Jane Austen
Douglas Adams
Madeleine L’Engle
Ursula K. LeGuin
Katherine Kurtz
Patrick McManus
Anthony Trollope
Robert Louis Stevenson

My favorite books of poetry as a child were Mother Goose and an anthology by Louis Untermeyer, the illustrations in that book were by Joan Walsh Anglund.
