The Book of Sheffield, which includes my story ‘The Time Is Now’, is currently the Sheffield Big City Read. As part of the celebrations, Dan from Sheffield Libraries interviewed me for their podcast. I talk about why my story is a love letter to the city, as well as Sheffield bands, Doctor Who, why you can’t escape yourself, tram journeys and writing in my local pub. You can listen to the podcast here.
And because I love music and I scattered several titles throughout the story, I’ve made a playlist of all the songs, which are verified Sheffield bops (mostly from the 90s). The playlist is available on Spotify and YouTube Music. Enjoy!
I’m planning to share what I’ve been reading lately with you soon, but in the meantime I have a piece on the Pan Macmillan blog. It’s about Lily King’s superb new novel Writers & Lovers and why it’s time we retired marriage, mortgage and children as the markers of adulthood. You can read it here.

Hmmm so I am the Hungry Reader. The one who reads. The one who is constantly reading or wanting to read constantly. This blog is all about the books I have read, the ones that I am reading and gems that I plan to read in the future or whenever it arrives.
