About meI’ve been an avid reader since the age of six. Lucky for me my parents were uni educated and books lined the walls of our home. I left school at 16, was 16 years interweaving my work as a librarian and completing my degree & post grad studies, then 16 years an educator in the tertiary sector, then 16 years working in the writing & editing industry. Now I’m retired from the paid workforce and live in an apartment 16. I expect the next 16 years to be filled with family & friends, writing, travel, film & music pursuits, political action and there may be time for reading.

About my libraryAs a former librarian I’ve no problem culling my library and have done so five times. Moving, after my husband’s death, from a large house to a small apartment my collection was drastically culled by 80% and I’m left with beloved reference books as well as the pick of my fiction and non fiction. In the cull I let go most of my novels as I know I’ll never read them a second time. Those I read every few years are still with me.
