Poems About Life, Love and Travel
"I'm liking your style. Not "sewn together," more like "laid side by side." Reaches the reader from the inside out. "
'It's almost like you capture small instances of life and create a picture.'
With the company of a place I write.
From Australia to Greece and a small life time living in different cities of Europe. A story of poems that illustrates a continuous beginning. Fresh and anew again and again. My poems are about absorbing the world around me with a pencil and paper in my hand. The way I see my life and the lives of others as I build my own outlook. There are poems for every mood in each chapter, sequenced like a story. A story of every day life, love, family and travel.
I grew up in Australia with a Greek family background. I have worked in various educational settings in Australia and Europe over the past 16 years of my career. I have a Bachelor of Education degree, TEFL Certificate and have an interest in The Montessori Method. I enjoy travel, languages, music, dance and sport. My love for writing stemmed from my experiences with different people, places and my interest in education.

I'm from Darwin the beautiful capital city of the Northern Territory, Australia. It has an exotic island feel and it is where I hold my roots as a nature girl in the wide open free spaces.
I've lived in the bigger cities London, Madrid, Albacete, and Frankfurt where I joined a Tribal Fusion Dance group which enhanced my artistic and personal life.
The mix of finding love, being abroad, dance and developing unique friendships with artists alike led me to write in abundance. I was involved in innovative dance projects with adults and children. In a short period of time I published several books of poetry.
I absolutely adore the sensations of Europe and I hope to return as often as I can. Travel, love, life and true friendship is the why I write.
