We have a new Book Review editor at Escape Into Life, Seana Graham.  Seana is a reader, former bookseller, and fiction writer who maintains blogs on a variety of topics. We are glad to have her telling us about books here at EIL.

Seana GrahamSeana Graham worked for many years in an independent bookstore in Santa Cruz, California. More recently, she spends her time on various writing pursuits. Her short stories have appeared in a variety of literary journals, most recently in The First Line, and have appeared in several anthologies, including The Very Best of Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet. As a reader, her tastes run the gamut from crime fiction to Finnegans Wake, which she is currently reading with a group in Santa Cruz devoted to this project. She writes several blogs, the most widely read being Confessions of Ignorance, where she explores the many things she comes across in life that she doesn’t fully understand.
