Today is an introduction.
Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? Where in the world are you blogging from?
My name is Laura. I am a mother, grandmother, wife, poet, and writer. I've been a teacher, a bookseller, and worked different positions in the public library system. I started blogging sporadically in 2010, and more faithfully in 2013. I got into blogging because I love talking about books and this is one way to share my love of books with other people who have a similar interest. I blog from the Atlanta, Georgia area. And my maiden name was Laframboise which is french for Raspberry which is why I named my blog, "Through Raspberry Colored Glasses."
What does your favorite/ideal reading space look like?
It has a comfortable chair and someplace for me to put my feet up. Add a good side table with enough room to hold a book or 2 and a drink. And plenty of light is a must.

What genre do you read the most?
I tend to read retellings and books that have some connection to folktales and fairytales the most. After that, I read a lot of paranormal, mysteries and thrillers, and horror. Sprinkled here and there are bits of non-fiction, romance and scifi. I prefer my books to have some humor no matter what genre they are if it's at all possible/appropriate.
What book would you love to see as a movie?
Pirate Vishnu (a Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt Mystery) by Gigi Pandian would make a good movie. I could see the flashbacks to the past and the action and adventure from both the present and past providing good fodder for the film.
