First, I would like to introduce you to Ambrose the Killer Whale. I adopted an orca! Yes, an orca. I shall forever take care of him as the sweet little preciouses flounders around the Pacific.
As for me, I do structural engineering for a living. When I'm not geeking out, I fly planes in the backcountry and paddle board with my dog. I live a quiet hermit life in the mountains which is FANTASTIC for yoga! 💙 Yoga for daysss! (And reading, of course!)
I also write book reviews for the Romantic Times (RT Book Reviews) under the pen name India Caedmon. I’ll be posting those reviews on the NDP website as well!
I am so grateful to share this journey with you!

1. a pen name.
NDP launched on Valentine’s Day 2017. Can you believe it!? If you told me 10 years ago I’d eventually be reviewing books in my spare time, I would have scoffed at you. But really. I didn’t start reading for pleasure until a few years after college… so what… like, 2015? That’s embarrassing. Don’t be like me. I have quite a bit to catch up on!
For those of you who don’t know me yet – and I love talking to each and every one of you! – I just really enjoy reading and writing about literature. I also have a really bad habit of proofreading everything. If there is a typo, my eyes will find it. Agg. It’s like a demonic posession and probably why I’m picky with books. I call it grammar-eye-disease. Luckily 2017 has been a year of incredible literature!
Finally, I’d like to thank you readers for supporting NDP and the authors, narrators, and publishers featured here. You crazies inspire me to find new books and write like a lunatic about said books. I can’t wait to hear what you’ve been reading lately ❤️
