I set my compass to explore after completing culinary training and chef’ing with two top catering companies in Australia, where I’m from. A career in food and a love of travel propelled me north where I lived and worked in London, the French Alps, and the western U.S. after which, I returned to Australia to finish undergraduate studies in psychology, philosophy, literature and media studies. Extracurricular reading on the works of Carl Jung: myth, dreams and astrology, lead me to advanced studies and a MA in Jungian Psychology from a graduate school in Boulder Colorado where I lived for 27 years. In 2014, I relocated to Portugal to write full-time.
While this anthology’s theme may sound niche, its appeal and scope is universal. Indeed, it’s underpinned by fundamental age-old questions: “What does compel someone to leave their country of origin, which is the story before their departure? And then what happens to them on their journey to the new place, which is the story of getting from one place to another? And what causes them to finally land somewhere and decide to stay, if not for the rest of their lives, then for an extended period?” The answers to such questions are voiced here by twenty women whose stories are vary vastly, with contributors hailing from places as diverse as Lebanon, Scotland, France, Germany, the USA, Mozambique, Spain, Brazil and more countries besides. Together their stories constitute a fascinating chorus of experiences borne from the author’s enrollment in an organisation created to help newcomers “feel at home in this beautiful country,” her desire to chronicle female oral history, and a belief in the human need for agency.
