About Diane

I am a youth services librarian at a Public Library in Kentucky. Reading is my favorite hobby, and I love to read children's and teen literature, especially fantasy and apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic books. I've posted a link to my Goodreads account since it's hard to post books I've read on two different sites.

Have you read Philip Reeves' Mortal engines quartet or Celia Dart-Thornton's Bitterbynde trilogy?

Hi Diane, I love reading a good fantasy in the summer too. Have you read The Summer King by O.R. Melling? Great summer read.
I hope you enjoy Dragon's Keep and The Beast of Noor. I'm working on sequels for both books and starting a new fantasy set in another world. busy but happy :)

Hi Diane:

I love librarians! Read my bio of Harry Houdini. I have a new one coming out in August on Marie Curie. I'm trying to get kids interested in science. Vicki Cobb

Hi, Diane. Great to meet you. I agree, children's books are the best! I'd be interested in hearing your take on the psychological "plug" of the concept of vampirism that makes those stories fit so soundly into the minds of so many generations.
