Name: Victoria (which was the name I would have had had I been a CS character)

Age: 52 - no "ish" about it!

Location: West Midlands, England.

No SLOC, four adult children, no pets, no friends.

Favourite characters and books: This is very difficult. Jo Bettany remains my favourite character - although as Jo Maynard in the later books she becomes quite boring. My favourite book does vary. I think that "And Jo" is my favourite, although I will always have a soft spot for "Reunion" and "Joey Goes To The Oberland"

How I got into the Chalet School: My elder sister had "Eustacia" and "Does It Again". I was surprised to discover (aged 7) further books at the library!

How I found the CCB: I was looking on the InterWeb for CS books and just happen to stumble across the site. I suspect that I have seen the address before but, not being a great fan of fanfiction, had avoided it in the past. I was converted by reading the posts and realising that I am not the only person in the world who likes EBD AND Dorothy Dunnett AND Angela Thirkell AND......

Same with me about the fan fiction - most of it on the internet is not to my tastes so I was put off a bit at first, but now I love reading all the things people have written which could be part of the official books! :)

Hello Victoria, and welcome.

I agree, I have never been keen on fanfiction at all before finding the CBB, now I am a complete addict !

Hope to see you around the board.
