I am a quiet, fairly nostalgic outdoorsy person. Have a love for history and the natural world. A great passion for reading is what has inspired me to write myself. There are many great books that I've read, which have transported me to an altogether different place. The power and beauty that words possess never fails to astonish me.
I was brought up in the countryside in an idyllic setting; surrounded by rolling hills, ancient woodland and fields that went on forever. As a child my nose was always in a book, have always had a love for learning and been studious.
There has been a shift in terms of the style of work being read and published. A rise of sites like Buzzfeed shows that people do not necessarily have the time to read long articles and much prefer snappier reads that are easily scrolled on tablets/smartphones on the move. A fervent list maker, I have stacks of them in notebooks charting events, childhood memories and favourite things.
As a book lover, I also enjoy writing reviews. Other topics of interest are nature, history, social history, anthropology, psychology, travel (within Scotland), football, childhood, popular culture and food.
