Who is this newsletter for?

If you like reading books that are funny, surprising, heart-breaking, or thought-provoking, you’ve come to the right place.

Thousands of books are published every year, but sometimes it’s hard to find just the right book. It seems like there are too many to choose from, and we don’t quite know where to start.

That’s where this newsletter comes in. People often ask me what I’m reading so I thought I’d write this little missive each fortnight to tell you what I’ve been reading and eating. I like sharing recipes almost as much as I like talking about books.

Who am I?

I’m a writer and editor who lives near Sydney, Australia. I retired from full-time work about two years ago and now spend most of my time reading, writing, and keeping in touch with friends. I garden sporadically and have two naughty whippets.

I read a lot and enjoy books that are well-written, but not overly literary. I especially like thrillers, but also read contemporary and literary fiction, and the occasional romantic comedy. I also read children’s books, especially if I’m feeling stressed or anxious, but sometimes just for fun.

My newsletter comes out every two weeks and it’s free. I’d love you to subscribe.
