About Lynne

My blog, Fictionophile, is a labor of love.  By blogging I have been in contact with some amazing people and it has kept me from missing my work too much. Before retirement I was the fiction cataloguer for Halifax Public Libraries in Nova Scotia, Canada.

I enjoy spending quality time with my husband, enjoying a glass of wine with my friends, gardening, watching British television drama, word games, crocheting, and jigsaw puzzles.  I am the proud mother of two adult children.  I love to read, and my favorite genre is mystery fiction. I also have a deep appreciation for classic literature and historical fiction.

I have been a reviewer member of NetGalley since October 2013. I also review titles from Edelweiss and I am the moderator of the Edelweiss Reviewers Group on Goodreads.  I and a Goodreads librarian. I occasionally take part in TLC Book Tours.

I'm BrizzleLass, I have Bipolar and have been dealing with mental illness in one form or another since childhood, I was first diagnosed with depression at nine. It's not easy speaking out about my experiences, some of them are extremely painful, but if I can help even one person then I have succeeded in sharing my story. This is where I talk about my mental health among other things that interest me. I enjoy walking, PlayStation, reading, heavy metal, and spending time with my Niece.
