Get to Know Me!

Hi, my name is Ann-Maree Howarth, I am a mother of 2 grown boys, one living at home and the other living away at University (no longer at uni know back at home as well).  I have been married for 27 years to my loving husband, where we live on the beautiful Sunshine Coast of Queensland Australia.  My household also contains one Miss Peppa, our 9-year-old Lasa –Apso dog, who is having a love affair with my husband and rules the house.

As a young girl I hated to read, I would cry, when my mother made me read at home.  When I was about 10 or 11 I found “Sweet Valley High” books and my love affair with books began.  I started to read Julie Ellis, Sandra Brown and Danielle Steel to just name a few.  I didn’t have time to read much as I started my family until I found Nora Robert's books and those of Janet Evanovich, Sophie Kinsella and many more.

I am a book hoarder but have become stronger over the years, selling some of my old books to make room for new ones.  Then, last Christmas I asked my boys to buy me a Kindle and my world has changed.  I had used the Kindle app on my phone for many years but I love the feel and the size of the Kindle.  I have only recently lost my job of 9+ years and am having trouble finding a new one at my age. I have found books to be my salvation over the boredom as my days were not as busy as they once were. 

I only started this blog in April 2017 as I was doing a lot of Advance Reader Copies of books for other Authors and wanted another platform beside the Amazon, Goodreads etc sites.  A very good friend put me onto BookBub and before I knew it, there were over 700 books on my Kindle.

That's a little about myself, check back again as I will update you all on what I am up too.
