Skin: the time in between

Mid-sixties escaped schoolmarm and mother of no-longer teenagers, and grandmother of two. I have a long-standing and only mildly guilty Spuffy passion. Not just because of the pretty that is JM - I love the complexity of the characters, the convolutions of their relationship and the sheer variety of opportunities they offer to writers. I'm English and live in the English Midlands. From September 2012 I studied for part-time MAs in English Literature, first at Warwick Uni and then at the Shakespeare Institute in Stratford on Avon. Love the studying, seriously considering going further if archives are ever open again.

I have modded at Seasonal Spuffy and was a Sunnydale Herald editor for several years. This fandom has given me long-lasting friendships and the inspiration to write with the confidence to share it with others. I owe it a great deal.
