A bit of background and how to get in touch


About me:

A thwarted writer with a degree in English Lit and Philosophy.

I live in Norwich, East Anglia. Fenland Tales started as a daily whinge about my three hour commute to and from work every day. Happily, I now work in Norwich, a mere 8 minute walk from home.
So now, Fenland Tales records the 2009 Book Challenge. My friend challenged me to read a book every week. They’re in alphabetical order by first name for the first six months, and then alphabetical order by surname for the second six months. Enjoy!

Extra Counter Culture
