I am a female writer. I am flexible in what I read, everything from non-fiction biographies on Eleanor Roosevelt to Graceling by Kristen Cashore, to all the Harry Potter books by J. K. Rowling, to The Hit by David Baldacci. I also listen to audiobooks. I highly recommend people to listen to the Harry Potter books. Jim Dale, who reads Harry Potter, all seven, is terrific. He can do all the voices consistently and realistically. If I was trapped on an island and could only bring 3 things with me, I would bring a very large book, an airplane (complete with fuel), and a pilot. Ha ha ha. If it was one of the Virgin Islands, I might just stay there. I mostly post to fanfiction.net under the same name. Some of my current stories I am working on, are there.
