Reviewed by Mildred

MildredI’ve always liked to do too many things. My dad taught me how to appreciate movies, especially the bad ones, and my mom got me hooked on books. There were always three to five books waiting for me in different rooms back then but now I stick with one e-book at a time.

For a while I wrote fiction and went to science fiction conventions to hang out with authors, artists, and Klingons. There are only a few places in the US I haven’t been to and I’ve played several sports competitively. After many years and a slew of jobs I settled into the quiet life of an office weenie until retirement.

Just don’t ask me to be the life of the party because that’s not a thing.
