About meI work in Corporate Communications, formerly freelance journalist and NGO monkey.

I don't really do journalism any more but still write for the Fantasy and Scifi publisher, Tor's website. You can read any pieces I have currently in the linked "my website" section.

"Beware you be not swallowed up in books! An ounce of love is worth a pound of knowledge" - John Wesley

A motto worth living by!

About my libraryBuilt primarily from Canberra's tremendous twice-yearly bookfair and a healthy dose of remainders over the years, I think that it's a pretty good representation of my wider reading these days.

I am very eclectic, but special interest areas include: Fantasy (especially sword and sorcery style), Classics (especially Russian and Japanese), Victorian and Edwardian ghost stories, historical fiction (especially mysteries), mythology, Victorian fairytale illustrations, 20th century and contemporary American literature, young adult literature, bread baking, and vegetarian cookery. But I believe "good" is a quality that transcends genre - and think my library reflects that.
