About meI'm 34 years old, married to Marc and Mum to the lovely Imogen (b. 3rd February 2008) and Arthur (b. 10 November 2010) I read when I can, but the children take up most of my time now. I also enjoy listening to music (of many different genres) and to Radio 4. Cookery is another interest and I love spending time with my friends.

About my libraryPretty varied, really. I like literary fiction and historical novels. Popular history, popular science, theology, philosophy, politics and current affairs are my main non-fiction interests. Biographies and foodie books are also in my library.
