I Fell in Love with Reading

Reading for me is learning.

I am of the generation who likes to read from a book - not from a e-reader. I like the smell of a book, the feel of the pages, and be able to easily page back to find something I want to understand better.

Most of my career I have read to improve my skills and talents in teaching children, managing processes and leading adults. I love to read then teach others through consulting, coaching, and training what I have learned.

Reading has also been central to my happiness in life. I can’t remember the first book I read that was not assigned to me by a teacher, but I know the ones that first made me fall in love with books – Cold Sassy Tree, Fried Green Tomatoes, Rainey, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.

What books did you fall in love with as a child?

Writing non-fiction about leader development, mentoring, training, and coaching managers has spanned most of my career. Leadership in the early childhood education field is where I practiced my skills for more than 25 years. In retirement, my fingers on the keyboard began to write fiction. The stories that come from my head and heart to the keyboard are historical fiction about family, friends, and the resilience of people. Check out The Nash Sisters Novels available on Amazon.
