About meA dull lapsed atheist lapsed broadcaster lapsed fire-fighter lapsed netball umpiring sports-keen still swimmin' lit-freakin' Dylan-freakin' lapsed arch-deaconing priesty-person and lapsed school chaplain who stumbled into deaning with lots of children.
About my libraryWhat I snobbishly describe as "serious" theology (though I'm learning playful too), and a kind of diverse gallop through literature - mainly "serious", too. Whatever that means. Or doesn't. Sniffs of other disciplines, but not a hint of anything scientific - Being dyscalculant I gave up anything involving numbers when I was about ten. And then there's kids' books. I want my kids to love books as I do. I have eight kids. That's lot of books. Ah yes, and Wodehouse. I married into him. The things we do for love.
