I love books, and am an avid reader of science-fiction, fantasy, and mysteries. I particularly like the so-called "cozy mysteries", perhaps because so often ordinary people have a chance to shine as detectives.
My job as a teacher doesn't leave me nearly enough time to indulge this particular pleasure (I teach high school French, and have taught junior high English and French), since my ever-energetic students keep my nose to the grindstone.
This sounds pretty mundane, but between my preference for other worlds and the enthusiastic company of like-minded students and friends, I spend a fair amount of time anywhere but here and now! (Would you believe I live near Vulcan and that there's a Klingon colony not far from my home town?)
