Hi! I’m Paige Beresford. A journalism student captivated by the magic in storytelling and books, I spend as much time as I can with books when I’m not with newspapers. I love reading – always have, probably always will – but not just the most prominent or the newest releases. I’m drawn to books that have a deeper, inner message that don’t always come to surface with a first glance. The kind that make you feel like there’s a final hidden piece that you just have to find to get the whole experience.
I wanted a place to go to find these messages in all kinds of books, varying on genre, length, and audience, but came up empty. That’s when I decided I’d create that place, not just for me, but for everyone else who craves that kind of fulfilment from a good novel.
Being a journalist, of course I have to work in a news element. I’m interested in bringing the newest books, stories and interviews from all kinds of authors to readers like myself, and to bring with that news a discovery of the deeper messages contained within them, too.
Other than studying for my honours degree in journalism, I work as a Content and Production Assistant for BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio 3 shows including Off the Ball, Jazz Line-Up, Sportsound and Call Kaye. I am also a Production Management Assistant in BBC Scotland for the BAFTA Scotland Awards and have worked as a Runner on shows like Sports Personality of the Year Awards, BBC Proms in the Park, The Royal National Mòd as well as many election nights, Children in Need events and the Royal Highland Show.
I was also a Reviewer for The Scots Reviewer and wrote reviews for music, CD’s, theatre productions and films. I was also a former Arts Journalist for The Scottish Sun and interviewed bands and artists and wrote music and concert reviews.
I love feedback and I try to make my site as user friendly as possible, so feel free to email me on the address on the bottom of the screen with any questions, concerns, feedback or anything else, or leave comments and I will be sure to get back to you.
