Hi, I’m Josie Moone and welcome to my ‘About Me’ page.
I live in Derbyshire in England. I’m a Mum to a three-turned-demon Corgi named Cheddar, and whilst married to my best friend, in various relationships with fictional characters.
When I was a child, I never went far without a book. At one stage, I think I knew my secondary school library better than I knew the school layout, but that’s for another day. Reading has always been my go-to. Whether it be because I’m trying to escape, need cheering up, or merely missing the feel of a book between my fingers.
Some of the most fabulous presents I’ve received is a good book, so it seems crazy that it took me so long to realise what I’d always wanted to do.
So, after, a lot of soul searching, wondering what I wanted to do in my life, I realised the answer had been in my hands for years. I wanted to write, but more importantly, I wanted to read.
Books. Stories. Spreading joy through words.
Writing had always been something I enjoyed, but never pursued for one reason or another, but when I began I couldn’t stop. Book blogging came next, something I found myself quickly enjoying as I ploughed through book after book.
I began taking writing more seriously back in 2019, after playing in the sandbox of someone else’s world, growing confident to make my own sandcastles. It’s also where the dream for this new little corner grew from, and over time, and with copious amounts of Pepsi (my guilty pleasure), ‘Pages of the Moone‘ was born, moving from a side page to a fully-fledged blog.
On my blog, you can find me, as openly as I can, discussing mental health, having had contributed two articles for ‘The Mighty’ and the rest of the time I’ll be screaming about books, writing, and lifestyle finds that just get me excited.
For more, you can always find me on Instagram @pagesofthemoone.
