My parents opened Pages & Pages in 1995 in Belrose and I have been working at the shop since then. We opened Pages & Pages in Mosman in 1999 and closed the Belrose store in 2003.
In 2008 I was elected to the board of the Australian Booksellers Association and became Vice-President in 2009. In 2010 I was elected President of the ABA. In 2013 I became the Immediate Past President of the ABA.
I review books on the radio every Tuesday at 10:45am on Mornings with Linda Mottram on 702 ABC Sydney
I was also a member of the Book Industry Collaborative Council established by the Federal Government from June, 2012 to July, 2013.
In 2013 Pages & Pages purchased a majority share in online bookstore Boomerang Books of which I hold the position of Managing Director.
Reviews on this website are not paid for and are 100% my own opinion. I receive free books and review copies from publishers but this is for reviewing and buying purposes only and in no way influences my opinion on any book reviewed here.
You will notice a distinct lack of negative reviews as I usually do not finish reading a book I do not like, life is too short to read a book you don’t like. I also do not give books any ratings as I think rating and ranking books is a slippery slope and I do not think books are in competition with each other. There is also deliberately no ads on this blog.
My only ulterior motive, apart from highlighting books that I have read, is to maybe encourage you to purchase the book I have reviewed from my bookshop, Pages & Pages Booksellers in Mosman or at least from your local bookshop.
I hope you enjoy my blog!
