Spring has arrived, and the trees have gone from considering budding to bursting into flower. White and pink clouds adorn leaf-bare branches; there is even a blue sky. The magnolia has not yet taken over the neighbourhood, but the true acid test has already been passed: there is a large crowd of jubilant drinkers crowding the river bank outside the pub rather than huddled indoors over their pints watching the rugby.
I am a bookworm; I've been reading for nearly as long as I've been walking, arguably with greater success (or at least fewer bruises). I never did grow out of my love for fantasy, space opera and speculative fiction, and I never intend to. Other favourite things include movies, cats, whisky and getting lost.
