Vulpes Libris

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.


Moira currently lives in Cumbria with two Jack Russells and two thousand books*. She was the manager of a small and highly regarded healthcare charity in the Lake District for over 20 years, until its closure in 2014, and is now considering her options, one of which is to write a roman à clef exacting revenge on everyone who’s done her wrong in the last 30 years – or possibly more, depending on how good her memory is.

Everyday Sunday she writes about life in a semi-fictitious village somewhere in England in THE ADVERSE CAMBER DIARIES.

She writes poetry badly, paints enthusiastically, embroiders beautifully and spends hours in the garden trying to prevent it from taking over the house.

She also has a deeply misleading habit of talking about herself in the third person.

(If you really want to know more about her, you’ll find an interview with her here.)


This is not hyperbole.
