Welcome to Well Read, my journey toward becoming a better author by becoming a better reader.

I currently run two other blogs, Isn’t the Lettuce Brave and NERDA’s World (ASL Vlog), and am a regular contributor to Touring Old Blighty, a United Kingdom travel blog. In addition to my blog writing, I have also published a few books about my greyhounds as well as my travels in the UK, all of which can be found on Lulu.com.

I found it hard going… Read more
I actually finished this book before Heir to Chaos, but I had to really spend some time thinking about it before I could review it. Unlike The Thief, which I found to be formulaic and containing characters that didn’t peak my interest, The Savior was about a character I had forgotten but grew to love,… Read more
