"I’m a journalist, a teacher and an e-book fiend. I work as a French teacher at a K-3 private school. I use drama, music, puppets, props and all manner of tech in my job, and I love it. I enjoy moving between all the classes and having a relationship with each child in the school. Kids are hilarious, and I enjoy watching them grow and learn. My current device of choice for reading is my Amazon Kindle Touch, but I have owned or used devices by Sony, Kobo, Aluratek and others. I also read on my tablet devices using the Kindle app, and I enjoy synching between them, so that I’m always up to date no matter where I am or what I have with me."


  1. Another morning link for those who’ve been following the debate surrounding Harper Lee’s second book, Go Set a Watchman. It’s marvelously well-researched.

    The article confirms what I’ve suspected, that this long-lost book is the first draft of what became To Kill a Mockingbird after quite a bit of editorial assistance and rewriting. Much of it is likely to have the same or similar stories but from the perspective of an adult Scout rather than the delightful one of the young Scout.

    Alas, I was growing about forty miles away from Lee’s Monroeville at the very time she was writing Mockingbird. Unfortunately, my hometown, Brewton, must have exported all its eccentrics to her hometown, because I knew none while growing up. There was no one remotely like Boo Radley.
