I’m originally from Manchester, UK. I studied in Scotland and Cornwall before living in Nottingham for a year, Amsterdam for four years, and Toronto for two years. I now live in Victoria, BC, with my husband, dog, and baby. I hope to never move again.

Besides reading, writing, and editing, I like to spend my time climbing, cycling, taking long walks through the city, exploring Vancouver Island, and cooking good food. Mostly I like to drink tea (strong and milky).
