Jaye's Picks

Jaye Lawrence learned to read with Dick, Jane, Spot, and Puff more than 50 years ago, and some 10,000 books later she still considers reading an essential part of every day. She’s especially fond of genre fiction—science fiction, fantasy, mystery, horror, and romance—but also enjoys literary fiction and narrative nonfiction. After 25 years in marketing, Jaye happily abandoned the 9-to-5 office life for part-time bookselling and tackling her first novel (still in progress). She lives in Northfield with her woodworker husband Theo, rescue hound Rudy, and a very loud Siamese cat.
