About Me: I am a young woman from Queensland with a passion for writing and reading, and what better way to do both than here? I read mainly fantasy and sci-fi, although I devour the occasional Sherlock Holmes adventure. Non-Fiction is great especially when my hobby keeps changing every week; I guess you could say I'm a little bit flighty...

I Love: Ebooks and Ereaders and the freedom they give my reading, all the different books I can carry in such a small object. My tattered handbags are singing my Kindle's praises! I knit and crochet, often while reading, and I watch vast amounts of Anime.

On Street Articles: All my articles are on my website, which is growing slowly but surely, and my next project is to create an Ebook that focuses on creating an Ebook. Trippy I know. All this is thanks in part to the 30 in 30 Days Challenge I have accepted, and which shall surely squeeze my brain dry in a week.

So nice to meet you all and Happy Reading
