As the result of a transatlantic parental romance, I was born in America and spent my formative years in central Virginia. I came to Oxford when I was eighteen, read and wrote for three years, then panicked when I realized I had to get a real job. After some dismal office work and some even more dismal waitressing, I now work at Heywood Hill bookshop in Mayfair. It’s been there since 1936 and we specialise in monthly book subscriptions tailored to your personal preferences; check it out. I live in south London with three pleasant housemates, the occasional unwelcome mouse, and as many books as I can fit in the building.
