My name is Mary Koester, my new alias is the novel gnome. I am currently retired after working in a high school library for 3 1/2 years and multiple years in the world of manufacturing. I read a variety of genres, with historical fiction being my favorite. I will feature primarily historical fiction on the blog now as I am currently not working in the field with young adult novels. I may periodically review another genre as well. I am a certified library media specialist, as well as a certified language arts teacher for grades 9-12. I thoroughly enjoy reading and do a great deal of it.
You can find me online at Goodreads.com, NetGalley. com, and LinkedIn.com. You can reach me by email at email@example.com.
