I'm a curator of manuscripts, specialising in modern English literature and the history of the theatre. (Qualified in the dark ages as a librarian rather than an archivist.) Am married, with two children (boys, 13 and 11): my husband's a railway safety inspector. We live in the archetypal leafy suburb on the NW edge of London.
I read, voraciously; sew patchwork; sing in choirs; am very keen on quizzes and travel all over the country and Europe for competitions - and I'm a practising Christian, and by "practising" I really do mean that I haven't got it right yet.
