Relaxing on the beach in Zanzibar after an amazing safari in Kenya gave me time to read two great historical novels – The Burning Chambers…
Who am I?
I love reading and always have. I'm also a big fan of writing, hence writing a blog about reading. I read lots for both work and pleasure and thankfully the boundary between the two is nicely blurred.
Work-wise, I do research into public services and how to make them work better. I love reading around what I do - whether it's on politics, innovation, government or just interesting non-fiction about the economy and society.
Non-work wise I have fairly eclectic and not very high-brow tastes. When I'm reading fiction I like to escape into a good murder, historical drama or inter-generational tale. When reading non-fiction unrelated to work it's usual a good biography or some great travel writing.
I also love taking photos, so all the photos on the site are my own.
