About meI'm a writer and an unrepentant, recidivist book fiend. My other half is a scientist.

We're both huge fans of Terry Pratchett, keen home bakers/brewers/gardeners/chicken keepers, and are interested in sustainable living and permaculture (probably inevitable – I was once thrown off a horse at Bill Mollison's feet).
We have a diverse and eccentric set of life skills.

My first poetry collection, "The Summer King", was published in July 2009 by Otago University Press, and won both the 2008 Kathleen Grattan Award and the 2010 Mary Gilmore Prize for Poetry.

About my libraryWelcome to my library. (Well, the bits of it I've catalogued so far anyway.)
As you can see, it's mostly poetry so far, but I am slowly adding books from my other life ...

Are you a poetry fan?
Scifi buff? Fantasy nut?
Barbara Good?
