Super Mom and Awesomely Nerdy Lady who can’t stand to sit still. I ran a successful online radio show that brought fans up close and personal with their favorite music, television and movie stars. Now, with my hilariously nerdy partners in crime, I have turned to my first love, BOOKS! A lover of books from a young age, I now always have a book on me no matter where I go. Books are my therapy.
