Welcome to my Reading Bifrost Blog. If you haven’t gotten the concept yet, don’t worry. It’s for the people old enough to remember “Reading Rainbow” and geeky enough (or know enough pop-culture, or actual Norse mythology!) to know the Bifrost Bridge.
I’ve lived in Southern Mississippi, USA all my life and was a nice little country girl up until about age 6-7. Then I discovered R.L.Stine and became a holy terror with books and comics. I may or may not have started a paranormal research club in elementary school because of those books.
Our town library sucked (and still sucks), having only old books that are donated by little old ladies with a Fabio obsession. But I did learn respect for the classics early because of that, and D’Artagnan from The Three Musketeers became my first book-boyfriend in Jr. High.
I earn a living working on computers. It’s not the ideal job I was wanting, but health issues prevented me from graduating college and continue to do so. I had always been an avid reader and had been studying English and literature in college. I still study world literature; my favorite will always be asian literature.
Every summer I travel with the Heavenly Vision Foundation to Belize, Central America on a mission trip. We give out food bags, clothes, shoes, candy (TONS of candy), we’ve had a medical tent, we set up a projector and had a “Frozen” movie night (NEVER making popcorn again), play football (soccer, in flip-flops), built a chicken coop, outhouses, tutoring center and all over make fools of ourselves to make kids smile and teach them about God.
I read fiction; science fiction, fantasy, young adult romance, suspense, horror (ahem… in other words, anything I get my hands on). Sometimes I can be persuaded to read a nonfiction book or two if it catches my interest.
I’m a full blooded geek when it comes to everything else: TV, movies and music. BBC and SyFy are my go-to channels. My music ranges anything from classic Tchaikovsky to the Japanese rock star Miyavi and everything between.
I also suffer from mental illnesses, which I sometimes loose to, but it’s a daily battle. I encourage everyone to learn more here.
