Vannessa Cronin
Vannessa Cronin arrived in the U.S. from Ireland over two decades ago and has spent the intervening years working in the book industry as a book buyer, as a sales rep, and, most lately, as an Amazon Bookstore curator. There’s almost no genre she won’t read but she particularly likes biographies and thrillers. She arranges her life so that she is never very far from a book (or ten), which is why her car resembles a mobile library. She and her vast book collection live in Seattle.
