CHB Staff

About John: John is co-owner of Cavalier House Books with his wife Michelle. He handles book fairs and the business side of things, and he has a hand in just about everything that goes on at the store. John is a fan of George Orwell and Ray Kurzweil. He’d rather read a book about the science of sound than a New York Times bestselling novel and he generally prefers his books steeped in fact and very dry. He starts way more books than he finishes but tends to overly enjoy every book he reads.

About Michelle: Michelle is co-owner of Cavalier House Books with her husband, John, and she is also the buyer for the store. Michelle is a reader of books and petter of cats who counts among her favorite authors Kurt Vonnegut, John Irving, and Gabriel Garcia Marquez. She hates Hemingway, loves Bukowski, and generally prefers a book in which bad things happen. Ironically, she also enjoys children's books and middle grade literature.


About Victoria: Victoria has been working at CHB since the summer of 2012. She helps run the internet marketing (website, social media, email marketing, etc) for CHB in addition to working in the store. She also helps with event and book fair planning. Victoria has been a die-hard Harry Potter fan since she was eight.  She is an avid reader of YA, especially YA fantasy and science fiction.  She was named after author Victoria Holt (whose books she adores) and doesn't understand the idea that books are not meant to be used for interior decoration.
