[About Me]

Imagination in Focus gets its name from a quote by Mark Twain: "You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus." To ensure that my imagination (which, fortunately or unfortunately, occupies ALL of my brain) is always 'in focus,' I read. And I write. And then I proceed to read some more.
Originally Imagination in Focus was designed to be a 'personal blog' that eventually became a 'book-review blog' and was founded back in 2009.
