I am an avid hiker, snowshoer, cyclist, cook (vegan), reader, writer, bookbinder, indie film-goer, and I love live music. I volunteer at an urban farm and for a wildlife rescue group and love animals. I work in publishing as a literary agent working on teen fiction, literary fiction for adults and some non-fiction including memoir and history. I usually travel in the UK, visiting my partner's family and on the west coast of North America, visiting friends, trying restaurants, hiking and seeing music. I'm a very quiet, responsible and considerate guest and love meeting new people (and their animals).
