A bilingual EU citizen, born and bred in rural France, I lived many years outside my native country: in Australia, England, USA, New Zealand, also in Israel and lately in Ireland. I have a BA in ethnology from a French university, Lyon 2, and was a postgraduate in Anthropology at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, USA. Now a happy grandmother I enjoy living in Chateauroux, the main city of my native area. My hobbies are numerous: pottery, horse riding, sailing, knitting, and dancing! I am turning 72 this year in 2016.
