I grew up in a tiny farming town and spent most of my childhood holed up in a corner of the library, where I was once almost locked in at closing time (I saw this as an accomplishment; the librarian disagreed). I could also be found performing poorly in gym class…or roaming the woods, making up stories and trying to forget the very existence of gym class. 

These days, I still love reading and sometimes I actually do get to sleep in libraries (long story, but true).
