A lady of 40-some years, I own a sick amount of books and graphic novels. I struggle against the oppression of office-wear, dye/shave/ignore my hair regularly, and spend most of my days keeping my daughter entertained/alive/fed. I cannot swim, read Iain Banks, or tell time on analog clocks. I like plants and haiku and graffiti and all things Japanese. I knit and sew like a boss, and have filled my home with crafting goods in anticipation of a far-off future where I am a retired lady of leisure, trying to fill my empty nest with feathery quilts and wooly vests. My Mum is British and delightful, and my Dad was a good-humoured Scot. My partner is a tall, dark and furry French-Canadian. I love buying real estate. Now that I'm officially Over the Hill, it's time to translate my voyages and adventures and various misconduct into exciting, transporting writing.
