About Author

Trudi from Non-Fiction Collections

Natural habitat: Bingeing Netflix with my cat. I love scary movies and have been reading Stephen King since I was 11. Getting to see Hamilton in New York City was the thrill of a lifetime. My subject area for the library is everything nonfiction, including my favorites: memoirs, cookbooks, true crime, self-help, history and documentaries.
