    Aurora is a Marketing Assistant at MIRA. She tends to read a little bit of everything but loves an epic fantasy with dashes of romance. One of her many pleasures in life is a generous glass of wine and a bowl of pasta. She tries to balance that out by going on runs, hiking and from time to time yoga. Her two canine partner in crimes, Tobey and Chuey, enjoy basking with her as she reads.

      Got to tell you, at 60, I keep think I’ve read them all. And my favorite one(s) are both not books: #1 all time is the old series of Beauty and the Beast with Ron Pearlman as the Beast and Linda Hamilton as Beauty. #2 is the animated Disney film,duh. But this story is so old, rooted in Gilgamesh and Beowulf…. and the newer telling are fairly good as well
