Extended Profile
I’ve always been an avid reader and still am - I love contemporary fiction, biographies, nature writing.
My challenge is to finish a book before I start another!

As well as books I love gardens / gardening, art, cooking, coffee, cats, exploring new places and country drives which end up in tea shops or pubs.

I enjoy wild releasing books around my home city of Norwich and other places I travel (I forgot to say I love trains too!).
