I grew up in the suburbs of North-West London where I still live now.
I began to suspect I was slightly different to other children when, at 7 years old, my most prized possession was the ‘A’ volume of the children’s Encyclopedia Britannica (I couldn’t afford the rest of the set). I learnt a lot about ants.
Reading and books are pretty much my life, along with my cats.
My love for poetry came relatively recently, but I’ve  always written stories and used to create little books with paper, glue and staples for my Dad when I was small.

At the moment I work in a Public Library and when I’m not working, reading or writing – you can bet I’m doing something else ‘vaguely bookish’.
