Reader, wanderer, vegan.

Stephanie Jane has been an avid reader for as long as she can remember. She loves discovering new authors from all around the world and is happiest when engrossed in a compelling novel with tea and cake to hand.

Raised in Sussex, England, Stephanie developed a wanderlust in her late twenties. She spends her time exploring the UK and Western Europe with her partner, setting out on foot or bicycle from their almost-vintage motorhome, and firmly believes everywhere has something worth seeing if we slow down enough to appreciate its smallest details.

Stephanie has been vegan since 2019 and strives to incorporate zero waste ideals into her lif

I got the idea to write this memoir because it is a book I would have liked to have found for myself.
I hope sharing my experience through Finally A Vegan: My Journey to Veganuary and Beyond will reassure and enthuse vegan-curious readers, especially those about to undertake their own Veganuary challenge.(less)

I find putting my thoughts down in writing helps to clarify them and I have a far better memory for something I have both read and written about. It helps to define the 'shape of the book' for me (as Virginia Woolf described in her essay. Is this true for everyone?

I was inspired to write my own book, Finally A Vegan, by the same need to refine my thoughts. I struggle to succinctly express myself verbally when blindsided with unexpected questions so this was the perfect way to prepare my arguments and I enjoyed challenging myself to truly think about what veganism means to me.(less)

In quarantine, new artwork & a giveaway

Further to my previous blog post, we returned safely and swiftly to the UK and are now almost at the end of our 10-day obligatory quarantine period. To be honest, I haven't really minded quarantining in the same way as lockdown wasn't much of a chore either. I am a introvert, the child who loved Quiet Reading Time at school, so I've pretty much seen this time in the same way - only with Twitter as Read more of this blog post »

Pseudonymous Bosch
“You know, people always warn children about taking candy from strange adults. But they never warn us adults about taking candy from strange children.
All those sweet-looking kids who sell boxes of candy bars on the street to help pay for schooling - how do we know what's in those bars? And don't even get me stated on that nefarious institution designed to lure unsuspecting customers into buying mysterious frosted goodies: the bake sale.
Adults, be warned: if a child wanted to poison you it would be a piece of cake! Literally a piece of cake.”

Nell Grey The Strictly Business Proposal

Hi Stephanie,
Can I recommend this book to you? It's a free download on Amazon at the moment. It's book one of an action romance series set in West Wales. I can promise you that it's a gripping read.

If you like it, I'd be grateful for a review.
Many thanks and have a great weekend,
Nell Grey.


Sophia Thanks for the friend request, Stephanie!

See you around GR!

Stephanie Jane Does anyone know if it is possible to change the read date through the kindle app or is it only doable on the website? I just added a review and rating to Monarchy: England and Her Rulers from the Tudors to the Windsors but the record kept the date at which I had added the book to Goodreads, not giving me the option to change it to today's date.
