Fleur is an alter ego. My friends and family call me Jane. Call me which ever you prefer – I answer to both!
Now, what else might you want to know?
I was born on the Cornish coast and, though I have travelled and lived elsewhere, the sea called me back, and now I live just yards from where I was born.
I read to live other lives and visit other worlds. I have been doing it for as long as I remember and it is as natural as breathing now.
I tend to read a lot of older books, and books from smaller presses. There are so many books that are under-appreciated, that could get lost, and they call me so loudly.
But that’s not to say I don’t read current books too. I do, and I find much to enjoy and much to admire.
I find it really difficult to explain just what I like, but browse through the archives and I’m sure you will get an idea.
I am a reader, and I don’t consider myself a critic or a reviewer. I repond to books emotionally and I try to explain that reaction as honestly and fairly as I can.
I do this simply to celebrate books, and to fix them more firmly in my memory bank.
