Online Books Update

There is an interesting Op-Ed in the New York Times this morning by the President of the NYC Library concerning online books. Link here.

Murder Ink - Taylor Stevens

Taylor Stevens is the award-winning New York Times bestselling author of The Informationist and The Innocent; her third novel, The Doll, will be released in June 2013. Featuring Vanessa Michael Munroe, the series received critical acclaim.  The books are published in twenty languages.
Born in New York State, and into the Children of God, Stevens was raised in communes across the globe.  Separated from her family at age twelve and denied an education beyond sixth grade, she lived on three continents and in a dozen countries before reaching fourteen.  In place of schooling, the majority of her adolesence was spent begging on city streets or as a worker bee child.  In her twenties, Stevens broke free in order to follow hope and a vague idea of what possibilities lay beyond.
She now lives in Texas, and is at work on a fourth Munroe novel.  The library has her first novel and is in the process of acquiring the second.  Click here to visit her website.
