Hi I'm Hilary and I love words and books. I always have done. I love language and I use it in my day job as a lecturer in communication at an FE college (I also teach numeracy and ICT). I believe that communication, in all its forms, is of vital importance to our society and writing is one aspect of that. I try to instill that in my own children (13 & 11) and in the young people I teach (16+). I like to write and comment on what I read though I have not yet written anything in particular as an author. I am currently searching for an outlet and the right route for my creativity, so I am sure that I will enjoy reviewing the work of others. I look forward to exploring this site (I can already see how easy it is to spend huge amounts of time here!) and am keen to get to know others here and to learn from you all.
