Hello, and welcome to Stephanie’s Novel Fiction! I’m so glad that you stopped by to visit my blog!
My name is Stephanie, I’m “40-ish” a wife to a wonderful man and mom to 3 wonderful kids.
I’m an avid reader and have been as long as I can remember. I’d probably stay curled up on my couch or in my bed reading a good book and drinking cup after cup of hot tea or coffee (depending on my mood 🙂 ) if I could get away with it! Secretly, I have also always wanted to write a book but besides doing a lot of creative writing, journals, and papers for work and school, I’ve never had the time to start the novel that has been brewing in my brain for decades…I should say made the time. One day I will get that novel written though!
Anyway, I thought I would create this blog to have a place to share all my reviews with people who love books as much as I do! I’m hoping to meet many more people like me in the blogging community who love to read and understand why books are my passion!
I’m also a fighter of several chronic autoimmune disorders and pain disorders: Lupus (my post explaining my diagnosis), Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, and Fibromyalgia, among others. These are disorders with no cure, but they are treatable. However, they leave me with a wide variety of symptoms and can often cause severe flare-ups that can leave me incapacitated for days at a time. When this happens, I have no choice but to take time away from work and the computer since too much “screen time” exacerbates my neurological symptoms. I mention this so my followers, publishers, and readers understand that if I’m not blogging or posting very much or sporadically, it is because my health is limiting my abilities to function as I would like. I do thank everyone for understanding that my health and children must come first since my blog is not my job and is done for the pure love and enjoyment of all things books.
I hope that you will join me as I share my book reviews of not only brand new fiction that is about to be published or has just been published, some fiction that is fairly new (and waiting on my “to be read” list), and some of my favorite older fiction. I’ll also be occasionally sharing my thoughts and contemplations about life in general, living my day to day life with Lupus and fibromyalgia- both of which have severely impacted my personal life. Please join me as I share my life’s journey through the joys of reading and my beloved books but also through the adventures of my crazy but wonderful life…
