My Book Cave Profile:

So, my question is:

Any other moms out there who love a good sci fi/fantasy flick?  Sick of the sterotypically named chick flicks being society's answer for women's entertainment?   Does watching Lifetime ("television for women") frighten the heck out of you?  Do you wish your car could transform, your significant other would give you books instead of flowers for your birthday, and do you picture your theme song as being something orchestrated by John Williams or James Horner?  Well if you can relate to what I’m saying, happy to have found you!!!!  Feel free to chime in about what floats your boat.

Call me Jess.  I am very eclectic (as you’ll see).  Some of my favorite things include reading, writing, scrapbooking, reading some more, and my amazing family!  All accompanied by a perfectly steeped cup of tea of course.  I have a husband and two kids and reside in Minnesota.  Wanna know the sci fi/fantasy/entertainment I enjoy?  I love to share!  Just check out my reviews. 


My blog is about updates for my book!  I'm a big fan of historical fiction, have a self-published book on the market, and am working on a few follow-up novels.  So check back to see what's new!
