Tell everyone a little bit about yourself.
I am a Biological Education specialist. I am an avid reader and enjoy many different genres and writing styles. I am Mormon, and I prefer to read books that are "clean" or PG-13 or less. I am a mother and a wife. I am an indie published author as well. I like to write honest reviews of books and share reviews of lesser known authors.

Who are some of your favorite authors? Books?
My all time favorite author is C.S. Lewis, not just for Chronicles of Narnia, but also for The Great Divorce and Screwtape letters. Rick Riorden is on my reading list at the moment, just finished Veronica Roth. I also just enjoyed a great book by Christine Elaine Black, an indie author I met on twitter. I liked Allie Condie who wrote a great trilogy. I of course love Harry Potter, I grew up with him and fell in love with all the characters. Books are not just a way to pass the time for me, they are a world that I walk into every time I open them.

What are your favorite genres of books to read?
I love fantasy, Young Adult Fiction, Sci-Fi and some clean romance novels. I like historical fiction, but I'm not a big fan of non-fiction, auto-biographies or anything too dry.

Besides reading, what other talents or hobbies do you have?
I write for fun, and I like to share my work with others. I do photography and art (mainly drawing and some sculpting). I LOVE to cook. My family and I like to try cuisine from around the world. I find blogs and chefs who create dishes from different parts of the world and I cook the food for my family. Lately we have been trying some traditional dishes from Israel and some Mediterranean cooking. I have my cosmetology license, so I do hair. I am a trained doula (labor coach) for laboring women. I also enjoy exercise ever since the Army... They kind of make you like exercise! LOL

How excited are you to be a part of the Masquerade Crew?
I was super excited to get this email! I LOVE reading and I really love reviewing, so this will be a great hobby for me. I am excited to read new authors and I am always looking for new books to read. This is a great opportunity to read great books, and get to know the authors through their stories!

You are most certainly our first doula! How cool! Welcome to the Crew, Stephanie!
