I think what best sums me up is a quote from one of my favorite books, Flowers in the Attic:
”I was the kind of child who’d always looked for fairies dancing on the grass. I wanted to believe in witches, wizards, ogres, giants and enchanted spells. I didn’t want all the magic taken out of the world by scientific explanation.”
Other than that:
– I’m a South African with French and Malay roots who grew up in Qatar who now lives in Jordan, married to a Palestinian/Filipino who has Japanese, Spanish and Yemeni roots.
-I love writing. It’s an extension of who I am.
-Obsessed with books
-Little things inspire me, like buttons, autumn colors, vintage photography and lots more.
-I like quotes, like this one: “Who told you that I want to be happy? That’s the last adjective I would use to define the future I aspire to. I want an interesting life, adventurous, different, passionate – in short, almost anything other than happy.” It’s from a book, guess which.
– I would love to write books. So far I have many ideas, many beginnings written down with no clear endings. Sigh.
