Chere Gruver

I love to read and always have. Actually, I remember reading WAR AND PEACE in the 9th grade. I read just about anything, from the classics to science fiction and just about everything in between. I have to admit that my favorites are fantasy. I no longer have a TBR pile, I have closets and towers of books. My husband keeps teasing me that we need a bigger house to hold all my books. I also love animals and always have. We share our home with cats, dogs, sugar gliders, ferrets, turtles, birds, fish and an iguana that is longer than I am tall. I moved to Arizona because I had enough of Wisconsin winters and love the desert. I know, but it really is a dry heat!
