Caz has been a fan of audiobooks and audio drama for a number of years. Born and bred in the UK, she grew up listening to BBC Radio 4, world-renowned for its output of high quality comedy and drama. Favourite dramatisations have included the spectacular Lord of the Rings in the 80s (in which Ian Holm starred as Frodo), Anthony Trollope’s Barchester Chronicles, and Villette by Charlotte Bronte, among many others.
She joined Goodreads a couple of years ago, initially as a way of keeping track of her books. But it wasn’t long before she got the reviewing bug (being naturally opiniated and verbose probably helped!) and she now has her own blog,Caz’s Reading Room, as well as reviewing regularly for All About Romance and Romantic Historical Fiction Lovers. Her preferred genres are historical fiction and historical romance – although as a big Doctor Who fan, she likes to get stuck into one of the eponymous Time Lord’s audio adventures from time to time, too. They’re just the right length for tackling a big pile pile of ironing!
In real life, she’s a teacher (of music and languages) and is the mother of two well-read and very talented daughters. Favourite audiobooks include Courtney Milan’s Unlocked, Lisa Kleypas’ Devil in Winter and A Rogue by Any Other Name by Sarah Maclean. When it comes to narrators, she has enjoyed performances by Rosalyn Landor, Richard Armitage, Simon Prebble, Susan Ericksen and most recently, Nicholas Boulton.
