About me

To support my book habit, I edit for others. When I’m not working, reading or haunting bookshops, I write fiction, blog and drink absinthe with Oscar Wilde. I also curate

I have started cataloguing Bram Stoker's library, too.

Update August 2013: The Wilde and Stoker libraries are currently on hold because of difficult personal circumstances and the loss of my library.

About my libraryI estimate that I had 500-600 books, which I started cataloguing at LibraryThing. In 2013, disaster struck and I lost most of my personal library, so many of the titles listed in my catalogue represent books that I once owned.


Favorite authorsJane Austen, Alain De Botton, Peter Carey, Clare Clark, E. M. Forster, John Fowles, Stephen Fry, John Galsworthy, Jane Harris, David Lodge, Ian McEwan, Andrew Miller, Sarah Waters, Oscar Wilde (Shared favorites)
