I’m a 20-something, unmarried, child-free Bostonian! I love animals, actively advocate for animal rights, and have been a vegetarian since January 1, 2007. I consider myself to be an agnostic humanist, although a friend jokingly said I’m more like a hedonist humanist.
As for my credentials, I received my BA from Brandeis University in History (concentration on US History) and English and American Literature with a minor in Religious Studies. I graduated in January of 2011 with my MLIS from Simmons College.
I just got a new professional-level librarian job in March 2012. It’s at an academic library in support of one of the medical schools in the Boston area. It’s hard to believe the right job for me showed up in the city I love! Someone pinch me!
I also write and publish to the Kindle format, Smashwords, online magazines, and print magazines. Please do take a moment to check out my Publications page.
I believe that people with mental illnesses should be loved and helped, not stigmatized or demonized. Due to my passion for those struggling with mental illnesses and their loved ones, I created the Mental Illness Advocacy (MIA) Reading Challenge. Please do take a moment to check out the dedicated page and consider broadening your reading horizons!
As for the genres you’ll find on this blog, I enjoy a wide variety! I like horror, dystopias, post-apocalyptic settings, paranormal, romance, classics, scifi, urban fantasy, memoirs, nonfiction (science, environmental, history, civil rights), graphic novels, and probably others I’m forgetting to mention.
I am also incredibly into health and fitness. I’m passionate about improving not just my health, but public health in general. I generally funnel this passion into the awesome world of fitspo tumblrs. But my tumblr also covers things like current events, feminism, and nerdiness in general.
Feel free to comment, but if I know you in real life, please let me know who you are. It’s ok to let me know via email or whatever what your pseudonym is if you wish to stay anonymous to the more general interwebs.
PS “Wolfy” is an internet nickname I’ve picked up somehow. There are a few people/groups online who know me that way, so I have a tendency to call myself that on WordPress, but I’m no longer using it to maintain anonymity.
