(aka Gilion Dumas)

I can't resist a list! Prize winners, Must Reads, Big Reads, Top 100s -- if it's on a list, I'm tempted to put it on my TBR list. If I really like an author, I'll add the bibliography to my list of lists. And once I read a book, I add it to my Books I've Read list. Arguably, I burn up valuable reading time playing with my lists. I know this.

Find me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.


I don't have much of a review policy. I am pleased to promote Oregon and other Pacific Northwest authors and publishers. Unless we already have a bookish relationship, please ask first.

I will also happily accept cookbooks to promote and review. Just because.

Otherwise, I'm just not that into review copies. My TBR shelves are already groaning and I don't like the guilt of another reading obligation. You can always ask, but don't take it personally if I politely decline.

One last thing, though, I spend so much time in front of a screen that I don't read ebooks. No hard feelings if you only have an ebook to offer. I understand you can't be sending paper books out to everyone.

When not reading, I practice law in Portland, at my own firm, the Dumas Law Group. Much of our work involves helping people who suffered sexual abuse or other abuses as children. We represent abuse victims in lawsuits against their abusers and the organizations that allowed the abuse to happen.
