I like reading, writing, art, hanging around in cafés and travelling.
I arrived in Australia in October 2011 and since then I’ve been blogging about my life here: rediscovering a favourite Australian children’s author, hunting out Melbourne’s hidden cafés, trying my hand at yarn bombing, exploring Australia’s cities and road tripping in the outback.
Before coming to Australia I spent almost three years in Edinburgh where I enjoyed the city’s thriving literary scene. During this time I blogged mostly about books and literary events. I was lucky enough to get interviews with some of my favourite writers, which you can find on the Author Interviews page. I also drank a lot of tea. See my Edinburgh Tea Tour page for more on that.
