I have always been an avid reader, but mysteries are my favorite. The
first mysteries I remember reading were my momís old Trixie Belden series.
Now I will read almost any mystery, although I stay away from the most

gardening. Some of my favorite authors are Katherine Hall Page, Ann Ripley
and Earlene Fowler. I also love mysteries set in New York City. I read
more hard-boiled authors like Mary Higgins Clark, Patricia Cornwell and
Robert B. Parker, too. I do read non-genre fiction and quite a bit of
I have been a librarian for five years and one of the best parts is knowing
what books are coming out ahead of time---especially mysteries. I also

Manhattan to used and new bookstores. Between April and October I read
mysteries between innings of Mets baseball games.
