COMMENTARIES ON THE WORLD’S GREATEST LITERATURE… AND MUCH MORE
Born and raised in beautiful Bucks County, PA, Lois has been both a voracious and veracious reader since childhood, devouring 40 to 50 books annually. Establishing the goal of a formal education late in life, Lois graduated from Delaware Valley College, Summa Cum Laude in 1996 prior to turning age 50. A perennial supporter of the American Association of University Women- and attending as many AAUW book sales as possible- Lois is navigating her way through Modern Library’s 100 Best Novels, the 95 Pulitzer Prize recipients for Fiction, 25 years of the Man Booker Prize, and the National Book Critics Circle Awards for Fiction.
Since 2009 Lois has been an active contributor at Yahoo Voices. Her freelance writing has been featured in a collection of nearly 250 book reviews covering new publications, the highly-regarded classics, and a broad variety of literary genre.
Formerly the US Business Manager for a major European wire rope and cable producer, Lois was responsible for processing, distribution, and product sales throughout the United States for more than a decade prior to retiring. In addition to her many interests at home, Lois has traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean, Western Europe, the Mediterranean, China… and most recently visited Vienna, Budapest, and a variety of villages & city-states in Eastern Europe.
“I’ve always loved books. My earliest recollection is pre-school. I would amuse myself by sitting in my little rocking chair with a book in my lap while my mother went into the basement to do the wash. I was neither the oldest nor the youngest of 5 siblings and as I grew up- at times when sufficient parental attention was lacking- I lost myself in books. Today, reading is as essential to my well being as eating and breathing. My collection of 1500+ books varies from classics: Austin, Dickens, Dostoevsky, Fitzgerald, Faulkner, Forster, Hemingway, James, Maugham, Mitchell, Rand, Proust, Steinbeck, Tolstoy, Wharton, and Woolf, to non-fiction: Roman, French, Greek, Russian, German and Jewish history, Holocaust survivor books, philosophy, psychology, and political science.”
