My first poems were published already in the 1980's   |   My real name is Berry Fabric   |   I am pisces and I don't act like one  |   In Chinese horoscope I am wood tiger and I do act like one  |   I have a French Baccalaureat examen avec mention assez bien  |  I took my first selfies in 1990's  |    |  I have made a live installation called Angst where I sat and watched Bold and Beautiful for hours and ate pop corn  |  I love potato chips

I enjoy simple things in life, whether it’s a pilates class, a good book or a movie. And, yes, that quality latte makes me happy, as does the company of beings who are wiser than me. For example, cats. I have made some big moves in my personal life, left my well-paid job as a theatre teacher, lived in a foreign country, put all my focus into writing, and once I went to birthday party where I didn’t know anyone besides the birthday guy – and he was my date!

 

Alma, the healer in my novel, would probably say that according to Chinese horoscope I am a wood tiger, which means I enjoy improvising and I do it without fear.

 

Nowadays, I divide my time between places I love, the quiet Finnish woods and trendy Barcelona cafes with filled with bossanova. I’m in a passionate relationship with the Mediterranean city. And, yes, it is serious!
