From Durban, South Africa. I lived in Oman for a couple of years before moving to England. I enjoy seeing places I've never seen before, and I've seen more of the UK than I have of my home country.
I know a shockingly minimal amount of the relatively obscure Afrikaans.
I like to go to the theatre and to sleep (very) late.
The Little Friend by Donna Tartt is a great book because it's completely heartbreaking and depressing in the best way.
Attended Salford University and support Manchester City, but I only go out of my way to watch the women's team play. I'm also conflicted whenever South Africa play England in any sport.
Too many national loyalties...
I cannot stand the taste or smell of bacon.
I love Scrabble but hardly ever win, surprisingly for a writer. I blame it on bad luck.
I've gotten very into specialist beers and have tried some very interesting brews, like a lapsang souchong porter.
