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’.
