I’ve worked with and owned various online communities for over 13 years including the Noesis and Lycos Chat, and a parenting community at ivegotkids.com.  Like the real world, the World Wide Web offers a multitude of different types of personalities which make working in this environment both exciting and challenging.  My work has taken me across Europe living in Denmark and Germany before returning to the UK with my husband and three children.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy has always had a special place in my heart.  It was the first book of that genre that I read and to be honest, unexpectedly, I thoroughly enjoyed Douglas’ wit and obviously nutty personality, which shone through with every word I read.  When I was given the chance to work with the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Foundation, I jumped at it.  The opportunity to help guide people in their literacy learning, in whatever way that may be, appealed to me strongly.  I’m proud to be on the ground floor of such an exciting project.
