Michele Patrykus

If it has letters, I will read it. Mostly I enjoy Sci-fi, Paranormal and Romantic Suspense.

I live a quiet life... or as quiet as one can get living with 6 horses, 6 dogs, 26 barn cats, 2 sisters and their bunnies and ducks! A friend of mine actually "founded" BOOKISLE, but when she moved out of the area, I began my adventure as a small business owner. The adventure has grown and the summer of 2005 we purchased a building and moved the bookstore. I will always hate computers, and they know it and exact their revenge; so I need an "interpreter" (Cy) to deliver the messages.
