Get to know Gareth

FULL ENGLISH OR CONTINENTAL?

“Full English, preferably in a greasy spoon. But I’ll pass on the mushrooms.”

RED OR WHITE?

“Red… although probably only as a post-ale nightcap.”

SUMMER OR WINTER?

“Barbeques, beer gardens and the ever-present threat of rain? Summer every time!”

HOLIDAY ABROAD OR ‘STAYCATION’?

“Both? Maybe a Cornish fishing village for a week in summer and then a winter escape to South East Asia.”

FICTION OR NON-FICTION?

“I read a lot and try to keep it nicely mixed. Non-fiction for travel, history and science. Fiction for the classics and some sci-fi escapism.”
