“Where are you from?” they asked.

“Seville” I replied.

“No, but where are you really from?”

Every new acquaintance ever

Does this conversation sound familiar? It’s where my story starts.

I was born in England and grew up in Spain. I’m from a rural town and a sunny city. I have a particular love for a picturesque spot on the Spanish-Portuguese border full of childhood memories and mingling cultures.

At the moment I live in Sevilla. This bright city in the south of Spain has almost every stereotype you can think of: flamenco, tapas, a bull ring and sunshine, but Spain is so much more than this, if you know where to look.

I’m a writer (when I get around to it) but my day job is in digital marketing. So whether it’s copywriting at work or creative writing at home, words have always been my thing.

Words help us make sense of the world. Join me as we explore life, one story at a time.
