A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.
Eve Harvey is a bookaholic. She is forever to be found with her nose in a book. If there are none around then newspapers, magazines, the back of cereal packets, road signs or the tiny washing labels found on the seams of jumpers will do.
Her other passion is writing and she is clawing her way through the mire that is the publishing industry; biting, scratching and kicking her way towards that ever more elusive publishing deal.
Eve has a full time job as a children’s bookseller and she is a Children’s Regional Support Manager for Waterstone’s so her first love has to be literature for children and teens. However she has been known to read grown-up books (not very often though – they didn’t put in enough hours when they invented days). She especially loves to find brand new authors and is always on the lookout for a stunning début.
Eve lives in a field just outside Edinburgh in Scotland with her daughter and son… and two dogs and two rabbits. She also has some tanks of tropical fish and vows one day to start up a marine aquarium. And the day she signs her very first publishing deal she is going to celebrate by buying a pair of Horsefields tortoises.
