Hello! I'm from Cumbria in the UK, which is just below Scotland and nothing to do with Wales despite various protests from people who are sure they know my home county's geography. I'm a copy-editor by trade, and it's just about as dry and technical as you're imagining.
Like so many others I try to write creatively in my spare time: I'm fascinated by the written word and consider writing to be the most rewarding of hobbies. I do of course enjoy reading, especially character-driven speculative fiction.
