I have written for the travel, entertainment, and culture sectors, both on-line and in the local press.
For over twenty-five years my day-job consisted of slugging away, making other people rich, in the world's most ruthless, yet strangely boring and inept corporate finance environments. Those included international banking, new-IT, and advertising.
As freelance writer, and critic, in my spare time, I helped run a workshop for local writers. Admittedly, I am no-longer writing the on-line movie review blog ‘Celluloid Seduction’, having no time to hang around the entertainment sites as I use to.
After the devastating and unsolved death of my younger brother on 09/09/1994, I continue to exorcise feelings of powerlessness, and loss that plague my psyche, by creating modern literal performance poetry, using traditional rhythmic forms, following in the footsteps of my late grandfather, the Cypriot 'Red Village' poet 'Vasilis'.
Recently, I jumped a milestone and found myself travelling back in time to my old haunts from the 80s. I even landed a job back in Government... but don't worry, nothing exciting to write about yet. I'm just a small cog in a big wheel.
I have many interests including the cinema, music, writing of all kinds, political and religious debate, new and weird science and the occult, plus a lot of other things that just don't fit in this box. Twitter comes in handy for disseminating views.
Although this Blog is a reflection of the strange world I find myself living in, it's also full of memories and opinions.
BTW: Feel free to quote me, but please respect me enough to give small credit to 'Marie from Cyprus' on anything you repeat.
Thanks for dropping by!
