I’m Jayne.  I have a Masters in English Literature, but rarely put it to any use as for the past eight years I ran a vintage clothing shop and arts space in Bristol (UK), and now I live in Madrid (Spain), in another language.

However, reading books and then writing about them was my first love and I wanted to find a way to keep that in my life, so I decided to create this blog.


Bookyish is a personal repository for thoughts about the books I have read, presented in diary or essay form.  Creative Writing contains information about where my own books and stories have been published.  Altogether, it’s my way of ensuring that I maintain a nourishing habit.

These are my other (somewhat neglected) projects: Como Ser and How to Survive an Office Job and Still be an Artist
