Meet the Team
Self confessed bibliophile and book-nerd, Krissy joined the bookshop in December 2019. As well as being the manager, she looks after the social media for the shop. Krissy is also a writer and is keen to work with the local writing community to help them use the book shop to showcase their work.
Krissy has an eclectic taste in books but her favourite genres are childrens and young adult, fantasy fiction and classical history.
Having fallen into bookselling by accident during the early 90s Paul spent the next 20 years working in the same shop by day, playing music by night.After a few years spent pursuing other interests Paul has returned to where his heart belongs.
A self confessed slow reader, Paul loves a novel that balances adventure with substance, he also enjoys poetry, nature writing and a good music biog.
Ever since she was read to in an incubator as a baby, Lucy has loved books (well, that’s what her mum says!). Lucy began her career in design for publishing before transitioning into writing and bookselling.
New to the Island, she’s keen to get to know the community better. Whilst, she aims to read as widely as possible, she always comes back to contemporary fiction as one of her favourite genres.
Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are
