My Favorites


Before Lilith was born I read an absurd amount of books, up to 500 books a year. I have no real problem with reading 7 books in one day if I have the day to myself. After she was born I haven’t had as much time, but that changes as she gets older. My favorite authors are:

  • Kathy Reichs
  • Jeffery Deaver
  • Agatha Christie
  • Sue Grafton
  • Dorothy L. Sayers
  • Stephen King
  • Dean Koontz
  • Margit Sandemo
  • Jean M. Auel
  • Terry Pratchett

  • Marilyn Manson
  • Metallica

  • Ozzy Osbourne
  • Rammstein
  • Týr

I mostly watch crime, horror, sci-fi and thrillers. But I also enjoy movies like Ice Age and I’ve probably seen almost all Vampire movies that are worth watching. I never, ever willingly watch drama. There’s too much drama in real life, so why would I want to watch it when I try to relax and enjoy myself?

  • Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries

  • CSI
  • CSI Miami
