I've been with The Reading Agency from the outset in 2002 and it has been great to be a part of the development of such a dynamic organisation. As Finance Manager, I oversee the running of our financial system and provide financial information for staff, funders and any others who need it.
My love of reading (and of cats) started early - I was one of those children who read under the bedclothes with a torch when I was supposed to be asleep. As a child I adored Wanda Gag's Millions of cats for its charming illustrations and also Gobbolino the Witch's Cat, which always made me cry.
My favourite book of all time has to be Vikram Seth's A Suitable Boy for its breadth and its vivid evocation of the colours, sounds and smells of India. I have recently rediscovered Thomas Hardy and would urge anyone who hasn't yet read Far from the Madding Crowd to do so immediately - such beautifully observed descriptions of rural England are a real joy.
