As a child I always created stage plays with props, costumes and make up. I have loved history since the day I was born and vividly imagined what it would be like 'back then' as I grew up. Going through various kinds of schools in different countries, including studying the Reggio Emilio Art Method in Florence, I ended up obtaining a MA in Educational Psychology where the personality tests told me I was the one to go to for Ideas, Problem Solving and Creativity. And that's it; Creative Intelligence really is the secret to my success, courage and adventurous life.
I love colourful parties, just as much as I love my introvert quiet creative space. I have researched and investigated women in history, across Europe, from the mid 1990's to 2018, and I am, in every way a product of all the cultures and people who have touched my heart with generosity. As such, I see my life and work as a constant journey off the beaten track where the past and future are in a constant dance.
My first book The Hidden Camino: A spiritual journey into the heart of the pilgrimage, where nothing is as it first seems was featured at the Byron Bay Writers Festival in 2015 and went on to become a bestseller. I am current working on two new books. You can learn much more about my work and research travels via my blog, SommerNews and Instagram Stories.
Today, I create. My aim is to empower and inspire others with my knowledge and work. I teach workshops such as: Research for Writers & Storytellers, The Art of Travel Writing, and Mind, Body, Book. You can find my articles on international online platforms such as Feminism in Religion and the Goddess Pages.
