About Me

I have loved reading for as long as I can remember. My earliest memories are of reading The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson, Charlotte’s Web by E B White. I also remember My Naughty Little Sister series by Dorothy Edwards and the whole library of Roald Dahl children’s stories. From there I read many stories by C S Lewis, Penelope Lively and Alison Uttley. Today my reading tastes are varied, my genre of choice is fictional crime although at times I do enjoy a break and will read historical fiction mainly but also chick-lit and fantasy.

As well as my reading, I thoroughly enjoy walking and hiking and bird watching, with the occasional treasure trail or geocache challenge thrown in. I have recently developed an interest in photography with my main focus on historical or interesting buildings. I do also spend time researching local history, our family history, I find genealogy a fascinating subject. Ian, my husband is also a keen reader and I rely on him for technical support in running my blog and also coaching and improving my photography skills.

In the near future I shall blog about local history and include some of my photo images as illustrations…. Here is a starter:


The Twelve Tellers, previously the Preston Savings Bank, opened in 1905. Now a Wetherspoons public house.

Happy Blogging

  1. So pleased to see you blogging, Steph! It was always a little frustrating to not have access to your book reviews other than on Goodreads or via Twitter comments. It’s looking very good! Congratulations (or should that be to your husband?)
