Good afternoon, everyone! Please join me in giving a warm welcome to the newest member of the Pure Textuality family, RedRabbitLinda!
I’m known as RedRabbitLinda. Born in Tucson, Arizona, raised in upstate New York. I have been an avid reader since my first introduction to Dick and Jane. I am never without a book on my person. You never know when I can sneak in a moment to read!
My preferred categories of books are Science Fiction, Horror, Mystery/Suspense. However if I am caught without a book, horror of all horrors, I will read anything.
My love affair with Science Fiction began with C. S.Lewis’s Perelandra, Space Trilogy. I read it so many decades ago, I can’t even remember what the books were about, other than space and the planet Perelandra. However, I can clearly remember staying up all night reading, and the sadness once I read the last word of the trilogy, knowing it was over………
I started reading Horror when I was 14. I was in the hospital for an extended stay. I had run out of books to read and a nurse handed me Salem’s Lot by Stephen King. I remember being terrified because I could hear Vampires scratching on the window of my room. Begging me to let them in. Heart pounding!!!! I love it!!!!
My obsession with Mysteries/Suspense was a gift from my mother who would bring me paper grocery bags filled to the brim with fabulous engrossing books, every time she visited. Her taste was impeccable and eclectic. Everything from Dick Francis to Elmore Leonard. My mother had some kind of strange homing device that would lead to the next fabulous author.
I live in New Hampshire in the middle of nowhere. I have two grown sons who are fabulous. My wonderful husband is the best, we have an old smelly Lab who is the sweetest dog ever born. My life is charmed.
