I live on the beautiful Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia, with my husband and two children. I’m a former scientist who loves to read and write. This blog has been redesigned to accommodate the three R’s that dominate my spare time: reading, running and writing.
In 2015 I embarked on a life long goal of writing, finishing, and publishing my first novel. Along the way I will work on my writing skills and enter competitions. I’ll also update my progress through my blog and record anything I think is note worthy.
You can check out the books I’m reading and my reviews at any time through Goodreads. It has been invaluable in recording what books I’ve read, want to read, and even own. I’ve joined groups local to me, or that I’m interested in, and I love the social aspect of the site. In one of my groups, I participate in the reading challenges which I’ve found fantastic — I’ve read books I wouldn’t have normally picked up and been pleasantly surprised. It also encourages me to read more (much to my family’s dismay).
I also have a very happy Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is sometimes dressed as a fairy, Minnie Mouse, a princess, or other character as per my daughters whims. He also happens to be my training buddy and foot warmer and you may see photos of him from time to time.
Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
