I'm Erin, and I live in Melbourne, Australia with my partner Rob.
I played the usual games such as Snap, Uno, Old Maid, Ludo, Sorry, Snakes and Ladders, Cluedo and Monopoly as a child, and Santa Claus often brought my brother and I a board game to share. The earliest "real game" I remember playing was my Dad's old copy of Sleuth when I was in my teens.
As an adult, the board gaming bug hit hard several years ago, when Rob asked if I minded him inviting a few friends over on the weekend to play some board games. Since then we haven't looked back, and we now have over 500 games in our combined collections. Storage is beginning to become a pressing issue!
In addition to board gaming, I love mystery/suspense novels. At the moment I'm enjoying anything by Sarah Rayne, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, Jeffery Deaver, Karen Rose, Val McDermid, Faye Kellerman, Nicci French. I also like Jodi Picoult, and have recently been working my way through Phillippa Gregory's Tudor series.
I also watch too much television. At the moment my favourite television shows include Twin Peaks, Veronica Mars, Suits, Lost, Glee, Winners and Losers, The Mentalist, Castle, Dexter, Homeland, and The Amazing Race.
I don't listen to music very often, but my favourite artists include Bryan Adams, Simply Red, The Beach Boys and Savage Garden. I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I don't mind being Rick-rolled every once in a while too!
