Taz_TNATaz: The largest carnivorous marsupial in the world is characterized by its stocky and muscular build, broad head, pungent odor, extremely loud and disturbing screech, keen sense of smell and apparent ferocity when feeding. That’s me! Voracious lover of romance, I keep a wealth of good books in my pouch to keep my appetite satisfied. But when I read, it’s with a hunger. So bring on the stories. I can’t get enough of ‘em. Oh, but I don’t have a pungent odor…or so I’m told.

Now, have a look at what’s in store, and be sure to stay tuned for more reviews and the chance to win some great prizes.
