About the author


  1. “J. S. Mill’s essay on the subjection of women established a correlation between the degree of civilization of a people and the social position of its women.” From ‘Introducing Feminism; A Graphic Guide’ which I just got for my teen daughter. A little heavier th an my usual reading but true nonetheless!

  2. “But when he fails to get anywhere, it will make the fall even more jarring.” From Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes. Says quite a bit in a short space, does it not!

    1. hahaha not so good, I suppose…although disappearing and finding myself in a place with a warmer climate seems quite right! It’s not the best page to grab a sentence from, I think šŸ™‚

  3. “Some wretched men were found in the possession of certain powders and (whether justly or unjustly, God knows) were accused of poisoning the wells–with the result that anxious men now refuse to drink water from wells.” (from a letter penned by Louis Heyligen of Beeringen as part of a collection on ‘The Black Death’ by Rosemary Horrox)

    Huh. Maybe I shouldn’t have poisoned all those wells after all…

  4. “They stand guard by the food tables with their rifles plainly in sight”. World After by Susan Ee…..haha this is my life, I feel as though I need to protect the food from my girls
