Ashton

Bookseller, Harry Hartog's Miranda shop

My love of books began sometime in the hazy past on a lazy Sunday morning with my mum reading my brother and I Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in bed. Two books and many weekend mornings (often stretched to middays and furnished with afternoons) later and I began to read the series independently. The rest is history. Whilst I am an avid consumer of fiction, history, philosophy, and poetry, I have never shaken my fantasy roots, to which, like an old dressing gown, I return time and again. When I’m not reading, I’m studying psychology and philosophy at UNSW, writing poetry, or working part-time in child care.
