I live in Durham, although I’m from way down South (London). I’ve been up here for about 9 years and I still struggle to understand what taxi drivers say, which frequently leads to embarrassment. I work for Mslexia, in projects and marketing, and my dream is to have a second-hand bookshop with really good coffee (and cakes…obviously with cakes. And a cat).
I’ve have a M. Litt in English Literature, specialising in Agatha Christie and Golden Age detective fiction, and am a little bit of a grammar/punctuation nut. Misuse of apostrophes makes me snippy. I love most kinds of fiction, especially thrillers and detective stories from the 1930s, owls, dinosaurs, pandas, and coffee. And cake. Sir David Attenborough is my spirit
