MEET THE OWNER
I was born a farmer's daughter in rural East Yorkshire and it wasn't long before I discovered the joy of books and reading. I met Ed shortly after leaving high school and we have been together ever since, raising three sons: Jakob, Luke and Zach.
We spent many years residing in Leeds before finally settling in North Yorkshire, where I began my bookselling career in the much-loved and missed Borders in York. I moved on to Waterstones and was quickly promoted to Events Manager, spending 9 years working my socks off running their extensive events programme and earning a reputation amongst the publishing industry as a professional and passionate organiser.
Always proud (if not a little envious) of Ed for running his own company I decided that I would quite like a go myself and Fox Lane Books - named after the street we have lived on since 2000 - was born in 2019. My office is our family home where I spend my day with my three helpful assistants: my son Jakob, and my cats, Tilly and Maui!
Fox Lane Books aims to deliver a well organised, professional and friendly service providing curated books and literature to both specialist events and the wider community through our online shop.
I hope to work with you soon!
