I am a vegetarian with an M.A. in International Relations and former Marine originally from Cleveland, Ohio. Since then I left the corporate world to become a bicycle mechanic and wheel builder.  I live a car-free life in the suburbs of Dallas, TX and read in every spare moment.

    So glad to know about your site. Heard about it from author Samuel W. Gailey/Blue Rider Press and read your great review of his book “Deep Winter”. And, yes, thanks for serving—I’m a navy brat whose dad served for 25 years and dragged us around the world when he did NATO work.

    Hey! I’m looking for a few fellow readers to look at my book and possibly review it for me. I have a very short trailer and the first chapter, audio-book version, to check out! I’d give you a shout out on my youtube channel if you did!!

    Here’s the Goodreads link: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25482745-remedy-for-memory?from_search=true&search_version=service

    Thankful for any support!

  6. Hello Evil Cyclist! I thought of you when I started What’s That Book? because you read a lot of different things and I’d like to share what other people are reading. I’m especially interested in sharing the non-fiction genre, since I read so much fiction! Let me know if you are interested. You can email me at bvitelli2009@gmail.com and I will send you the template.

  7. Thanks for the review, John – appreciate the thoughtfulness in the read, as well as the kind words!
