Get to Know KDL: Noey from Byron Twp.

Meet Noey, a new friendly face at our Byron Township Branch. She is an Assistant Branch Librarian by day and a special effects makeup artist by night. Let's get to know her a little bit better.

The best book I ever read is...
The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. I could reread this book over and over and not get bored. I love the kooky cast of characters and constant unexpected twists and turns. If you love a murder mystery with complex relationships and a fine line between good and evil, this is the novel for you!

If I could meet one person - dead or alive - I would choose...
Lon Cheney. His work as the original phantom in Phantom of the Opera and countless works in the makeup effects industry inspired me to become a special effects makeup artist. Because of him, I have found my calling and love for horror.

The talent I really wish I had is...
 Being good at video games. I know a bunch about them because my brother is a pro. I'm just not very good at playing them.

When I was a child, I wanted to grow up to be...
 A professional singer or a veterinarian. I often threw around the idea of being a singing veterinarian and sing to sad animals to make them feel better. 

Three things I couldn't live without are...
 My cat, Frederick, some true crime books, and a weird, shaped mug. I have a slight obsession with odd looking mugs.

This past year has been tough, but it taught me to...
 Appreciate life's little victories and human interaction. As an extroverted person, being isolated from others can be exhausting and I never realized how mentally rejuvenating a trip to the grocery store can be.
