A few random facts about me!

I love languages. Particularly ancient languages with a new alphabet to learn. If you want to order a coffee in a different language, I’m useless. But want to tell someone to untie their donkey because there’s an army coming over the hill? I’m your woman.

I have worked in various jobs alongside writing and studying. My first job was as a Project Editor on science and technology journals; I learned a lot about concrete. The best job I ever had was in an archive, where I could spend the whole day looking at old books and manuscripts.

I’m still trying to master vegan baking. Bread – getting better. Cookies – generally delicious. Cakes? Well, imagine something with the texture of a soggy Pritt Stick. It’s a work in progress.
