What is your current position at Barrow Hills, and how long have you worked here?

I have been the librarian at Barrow Hills for 18 months.

Where were you born and where do you live now?

I am Manx and was born and raised in the Isle of Man. I have lived in Witley for 18 years.

Who are your favourite children's authors?

Kiran Millwood Hargrave, Lauren St John, Katherine Rundell and Sophie Anderson.

What place, real or fictional, would you like to visit and why?

If I could click my fingers and be anywhere I would be standing on a bridge overlooking the tranquil Sulby river near my childhood home in the Isle of Man.

If the Library could talk, what do you think it would say?

“Read my books NOW and then please put them back the right way up”!

What's your favourite saying?
