About me

The not-so-sacred feminine.

Mother, wife, daughter, cousin, sister, writer, friend, colleague and everything in between. Compulsive talker and writer  – as in the one who talks and writes purely because not doing either is unthinkable.

Teacher by natural extension.

Guilty of multilingual pretensions. A penchant for words, shadows, mountains and the colour green, and an abiding lust for poetry.

I confess to being a true believer in Alice in Wonderland.

P.S. I don’t hesitate to use ellipsis and exclamation marks…!

***

The fact that my text ‘Once There Were Shadows‘ appears in Seagull Books Catalogue 2016-17 is an endless source of pride and joy.
