Biography

Having lived in London for the last fourteen years - for me, the City's rich history is spellbinding. Few places can boast of roots dating back almost 2000 years, and if like me you enjoy being spooked, the City of London has the very best in ghouls & graveyards to chill the blood...and always with a good pub at the finish (no tourist traps!)

I'm also lucky enough to work at Lambeth Palace, parts of which date from the 15th century, so history is all around. Can't get away from it even if I wanted to! :)
