About Me

I live in Montreal, Canada. I like to cook, bake, travel, read, write, spend time with my toddler, watch films, and pet my cats and hamster. I like animals. I own my own business and don't have a lot of time for letter writing anymore, though I love it! I usually write long letters and I try to write back immediately. I like to go to live orchestral concerts and operas, museums and sights, and restaurants.

Favorite Books

When I try to sound intellectual, I say I like: Sound and the Fury, Jane Eyre, Hunger Games, Mill on the Floss, North and South (Elizabeth Gaskell, not John Jakes)

But secretly I read lots of werewolf/shifter/vampire/historical romance books like Anne Bishop, Shelly Laurenston, Nalini Singh. And, of course, tons of picture books. Latest favourites were the Crazy Rich Asian trilogy.

Favorite Movies

Crazy Rich Asians, The Jane Austen Book Club, Return to Me, Princess Bride, Pygmalion, Gosford Park, The Trotsky

Favorite Television

(no tv, so I'm a slave to what's available online) Doctor Who, Sherlock Holmes (BBC), Big Bang Theory, Once Upon a Time, Castle, Bones, NCIS (original and New Orleans), Firefly, So You Think You Can Dance, The West Wing, Friends, Anne with an E, Call the Midwife, Instant Hotel, cooking shows, Bar Rescue, anything Animal Planet

Favorite Music

Broadway, movie soundtracks, opera, concertos, Russian classical, Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley, funny country

Favorite Teas

anything you can put milk and sugar into, preferably black. Like earl grey, chai, any of the breakfast teas, etc.. brownie points if it's decaf (because that means I can drink more of it without getting a headache). I prefer loose leaf teas, but for swapping, please only individually-wrapped ones.

Comment: I really enjoyed meeting your kitty Olaf. Love the stamp drawing of him, too. It was really interesting to read about your life as well. I will try to write back soon.

Comment: Thank you for your letter. The paper you used is exquisite. And I love the stamps! It was easier to read than I anticipated - thanks I think in part to your lovely handwriting. I've always meant to read Northanger Abbey and you've reminded me to put it on my reading list. I think someone should host a swap where we send in pics of our desks. I would love to see your folding secretary desk. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas - it's always more fun with little ones around.

Comment: Thank you for the nice Montreal view pc. Indeed: no ID here to fill in. Thank you for the beautiful stamp. Nice that your parents did a Dutch cruise. I'm sure they also did see the bulbfields. April is the best time of year to see them in full colour. Wish you the best.

Comment: Read it! What a great letter, well worth the wait and the price of the "blacklight flashlight for anglers," which is rather cute given the image on the ink container :) I would love to write you back and will put this on my to-do list -- I think that we could have some fun discussing these ideas from different angles. !Vive l'encre invisible!

You're the second swapper to ask me that! I'm so glad people have been having fun with it. Yes, I'll host it again, soon.

Hey you! Do you plan on hosting another round of the "Crossed letter" swap? I missed the last one, but it sounds like such an incredibly awesome idea!

marthy on Mar 14, 2013:

Rachel, thank you for your sweet note...what a surprise! I hope you'll keep on swapping despite a difficult start; you're the kind of swapper that lifts my heart!
