I am a dedicated borrower of books. I spent my childhood being babysat by libraries. I spent my teenage years hiding from my peers in libraries. I spent my university years studying (and sometimes sleeping) in libraries. And I’ve spent the last 15 years working in libraries.
I’m also a bit of a magpie and I will pick books up from anywhere. We were never a wealthy family and growing up I used to love rooting through our parents’ bookshelves on the landing and through our Nana’s wardrobe of books and through our small local library’s shelves. Books found this way feel like they’ve been waiting for you.
I don’t only read SFF, but it is my primary flavour. I’ll read anything except a straight-up romance, and some of my all-time favourite books have nothing to do with dragons, phasers or aliens. (I made a page about my ‘All Time Greats’ that you can visit here if you’re interested).
Welcome. Let the foraging begin …
