J. F. Cain is a writer with a restless mind who spent years of her life reading and travelling. But of all the places she has been to, her favorite is a house in the mountains where she can focus on her writing. She is a seeker of knowledge who transcribes the results of her studies in her books. Her favorite pastime -other than reading and writing- is scouring libraries. However, she has lately convinced herself that she enjoys shopping just as much, as well as spending time with family and friends - the few that can still tolerate her frequent and extended periods of absence.
