I'm a reader.

I am also a writer, editor, teacher.

After many years of keeping both those lines separate, I realised I needed to coalesce them. Thus, this blog was born, not without its labour pains and anxieties.

Here, you will mostly find book reviews, as the name indicates. They are written with the intention of helping people choose works they might enjoy, or they might gift. At times, there will be some of my own creative work, but mostly, this is about promoting discerning reading.

Plus, let's face it, it's a great excuse for when the world comes knocking but I just would rather enjoy my books!
