Welcome to Violin & Books!
I’m a multi-genre author and book reviewer who started to play the violin in my mid thirties. This magnificent instrument has brought a new wonderful dimension to my life–not to mention that it has been a GREAT challenge for a late starter like myself! What’s been really neat about learning to play the violin, among other things, is that it has inspired me enormously in my writing. All of a sudden, I have dozens of stories in my head, all violin-related in one way or another!
Basically, I started this blog for two reasons. First, I wanted to find an audience for my violin-related books. If you’re like me and you play the violin, you love reading about the violin. Second, I wanted to keep track of violin-related fiction available on the net. There are hundreds of nonfiction books related to the violin, but hardly any fiction (maybe because there are few violinists who also happen to be fiction writers?)
I’ll be adding reviews and interviews as often as possible. If you know of any great (or not so great) violin novels, please let me know so I may add it to my list.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’ll visit again!
