I am career librarian and mother who has worked in public libraries, government libraries, as a self employed information broker and as a book indexer before coming back to being a children’s librarian in one form or another.
I have recently retired as CEO of the School Library Association (SLA website) . So not so much travel but now lots of time for new activities and adventures!
I have lived in Northamptonshire very happily for over 30 years but, as a girl born in Yorkshire, I long for the wilder rugged scenery moors and dales can provide – hence lots of holidays in Devon, Scotland, Wales and Yorkshire!
As a lifelong reader I could be described as having catholic tastes – I will read almost anything, even the cereal packet, though there is nothing so good as a well written book.
Favourite authors are many and varied, as are my choices of cinema, theatre and music – all are favourites.
I have no doubt I will also mention my family at various times – made up of two very talented daughters (I think so anyway!), one long suffering husband and elder daughter’s husband. Animals come and go in the family – currently feeling bereft as we have been without animals for some years now. I’m sure some will return when the time is right.
