About Me

I live with my husband in Tacoma, Washington. I am a Washingtonian to the core. The weather (although not as dreary as the outside world would believe) is not that bad. Plus, it supports my affinity for sweaters, scarves, and jeans. 🙂

See my First Day Five post to see a little more about me. I am a teacher, an intern, and past-president of a teacher organization in WA. Those are just titles–I’m many things in between which is what I hope you’ll learn about me while I blog.

My motivation for starting a blog came from a desire to be able to better network with the publishing world. I have really enjoyed following authors and editors. I hope you enjoy my occasional reviews on books. I try to read frequently, but really, with the internship where I read manuscripts and being an English teacher where I get to read insane amounts of student work, reading for fun goes to the bottom of the list. I’m a busy person and I love it. When I have kids in the future I’ll need to prioritize and drop a couple activities, but in the meantime my life suits me just fine.

    • Hi Hally, I went missing from the blogger world for many months, so , thanks but I don’t think I would be good for this at this point. 🙂 Good luck to you!

  2. Hello Kari,

    My name is Jordana Lizama, I am a first time author and have recently finished my novel Sophia:Within, which is the first of a series and is now available on Amazon.

    I’m really excited to have my book published and I wanted to know if you would be so kind to write a review on it, if you are interested I can send you a review copy of my book, either in PDF or MOBI format, whichever way you prefer.

    Also, if you want it would be great if we can do a giveaway of my book on your site, if you think this is a good idea you can setup the giveaway any way you want and I will send an electronic gift of my kindle book to whoever the winner is along with a digital dedication.

    I enclose the book description, just so you can get an idea of what the novel is about. And the link to Amazon.

    Only time will tell if Sophia, Alec and the world are ready to accept the mission that has been passed down for many generations. This is more than a story of reincarnation. This is a story that never ended following the reign of the Greek gods.

    What has been hidden for thousands of years is about to surface in a small New England town. The impact on this rural village is ageless, but only the chosen time travelers know what is happening, the reason it is happening and how to control the outcome.

    The Men of Ages have walked the Earth unnoticed since the time of Greek mythology and have kept their ancient war alive by transporting the lead warrior in a most unusual time machine. There is only one way to stop the cataclysmic demise of the human race and Sophia is the answer. But, Sophia is a teenage girl faced with many human and nonhuman desires that create a tortuous path from antiquity to the present day. Love conquers all; or, so it seems.


    Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon.
