Hi, my name is Jess. I’m from Yorkshire, and have been based in Leeds for the past ten years or so. I have an MSc in Information and Library Management and I gained my MCLIP in April 2016. Currently I work as a Subject Librarian in HE.
Between 2010-2013 I ran The Travelling Suitcase Library, appearing at festivals across the UK. I am known on occasion as ‘The Book Elf’.
I am also a crafter, my main interest being in cross stitch and crochet. I was also on the organizing committee for the Leeds Big Bookend 2015 and Leeds LadyFest 2013. I am an avid watcher of Scandinavian Crime Dramas and drinker of Stout. Frustratingly, I do not own a cat.
