About Me

So you wanna know something about me? I’ll certainly oblige the request, but I should warn you up front it’s not very exciting. But surely you can’t expect much – you already know I’m a book nerd. Anyway, I am a single female in my mid-thirties (okay, okay, my late thirties) who works a full-time job at a local hospital and attends college at UNCC with the hopes and aspirations of obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree in English with a minor in Political Science. What happens after that is still to be determined. I am the proud mother of four wonderful canines. One is a male Cocker/Brittany Spaniel mix who lives in the house with me and goes with me when-ever and where-ever it is possible. The other three are female Heinz 57’s who came to live with me after some heartless individual abandoned a momma dog and six newborn pups in the woods near my house several years ago.  Three pups didn’t make it, so now I have the momma and two of her babies who live outside in a nice fenced-in area.

I live in a small rural community surrounded by family.  I’m sure you will meet some of them in the near future as I share my various anecdotes.  As you can probably tell, this site is still under construction so my plans for what I want it to look like and what I intend to discuss may vary as time passes by.  However, at this point I hope a major portion will remain dedicated to my love of books and reading – so I will share what I have read, what I am reading, and what I hope to read along with insights into how particular books have shaped my thinking.  I hope to also share some of my own writing (poems, essays, short stories) for those of you who may be interested.  And I am sure that it is inevitable that I will occasionally begin to pontificate about current events and the goings-on in the news.

Feel free to leave a comment on anything you may read here.  You may disagree with anything I say as long as you are respectful and considerate.  I promise to offer the same to my readers.  If you do not want to comment directly on the blog, please feel free to e-mail me at mcpeeler@bellsouth.net.

So thanks for dropping by and please come back to visit soon.
