Passionate about books, libraries, Moomins, cupcakes and Richard Armitage.
Avid movie watcher and music listener, eclectic taste ranging from the mainstream to the unknown.
Favorite authors are many but include Alan Garner, Kate Forsyth, Juliet Marillier, Freda Warrington, J R Ward, Terry Pratchett, Phil Rickman, Sarah Pinborough and Susanna Kearsley.
Favorite genres are Fantasy, S/F, Horror, Mystery/Crime/Thrillers and YA. I occasionally delve in to historical fiction and non-fiction subjects such as mythology, legends and folklore, ancient & mediaeval history. My main interest is in fairy tales, both academic and for every day reading.
