About Me

I’m a book lover with a  passion for writing, music, art, flowers, food and wine. Oh, and goats. I’ve worked in the book business for over 10 years as a bookseller, bookstore manager and, most recently as part of a life do-over, editorial assistant. I like to read a lot and tell people about books I love.  I’m excited when other people tell me about their favourite books, especially if it’s something I haven’t read yet. I believe what people read reveals something about them. We love the books we do for very personal reasons. When you share that with others, you share something of your hidden self. You can contact me at deirdre@yourhiddenshelf.com.

  1. Hi Deirdre,

    I stumbled on your blog and was blown away. I’m trying to figure out how I can subscribe and share it with my friends. I love the way you write…I never knew!

  2. I would like you to review my novel,”Lily Steps Out,” Penumbra Publishing May 2012, the story of a middle-aged woman who is sick of making beds and fixing meals, and “steps out” of her comfortable domestic life into the business world, much to the mocking disbelief of her reitired husband and grown son.
