Life outside of Sparkes
When she’s not trying out a new restaurant or recipe with her family and friends, you will often find Angel with a cup of tea, a good book or a period drama, sharing her (rather strong) views on literary adaptations. Angel is currently learning Auslan and is fascinated by the language. She also enjoys hiking and is up for any adventure that involves her rescue dog.
