About Me

I am a stay at home mom to two minions currently living in Germany. I have loved reading ever since I learned how and got in more trouble in school because of books than I ever did for anything else. I read books in all genres, but prefer horror, science fiction, and fantasy to everything else.

  2. My oldest daughter was constantly getting in trouble at school for reading. When my mother punished me, she didn't restrict me from watching TV. Who cares about TV? Not me. Instead, she restricted me from books. Now that hurt.

  3. Hello Justin and Katie Schauer,

    I am reaching out to you because of your trusted commitment to Amazon and its reviews. I represent Author Marketing Ideas and we were created to help the self-published and small print authors maximize their marketing outreach to increase sales. I would like to seek your services in reviewing one of our bestselling author’s books.

    I did go through some of your reviews ("Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood", "Americanah"), and I loved the writing and the clarity of expression of thoughts therein. The text is devoid of jargons or heavy vocabulary, seems easy to the mind, yet at the same time conveys the intended message precisely.

    The book which I need to be reviewed is titled “After the Death of Me” and which is authored by Tatyana Shimlec. It is a wonderful novel based on a true story, which includes moving, sometimes joyous, sometimes harrowing stories of her childhood and coming of age in Siberia and Ukraine.

    About the author, Tatyana was born in Russia on March 12, 1949, in the Siberian town Kansk. After graduating High School and School of Music in the same year she attended College in Abakan (Khakassia) in major piano. She was married in 1972 and has 2 sons. After divorce in 1980, she moved to America where she now works at Falcetti Music as a piano teacher and also for an old couple as CNA.

    This book is featured in the Biographies & Memoirs > Memoirs on Amazon. Its Amazon link on the site is as below. There are also a few sample pages available there to read.

    Do tell me if you would be interested in reviewing the book - I would genuinely love to know your thoughts about it. I would like to have your frank opinion about the content, the nature of writing, or anything else about it.

    If you would, I’ll gladly get you a PDF copy sent to your email address right away. In case you prefer a hard copy, do offer me your mailing address and I shall have the author send you a copy immediately.

    Hoping to hear from you soonest.

    Warm regards,
