Born in the Rhondda Valley, South Wales, Chris has lived for fourteen years in the Almanzora Valley, Almeria, Spain. She writes about anything and everything. Micro fiction, flash fiction and poetry are current favourites. She has work published internationally in anthologies and online. She has compiled a book of her poetry and is trying to procrastinate less and become pro-active in seeking a publisher! Before leaving for foreign shores she was a member of the Rhondda Phoenix Writing Group and on becoming an expat enjoyed being an active and appreciative member of the now folded Writers Abroad. Her blog, Almonds and Olives, began as a showcase for her poetry but more recently she has shared articles about the beautiful places to be explored in her chosen country, many within an hour or so driving distance of her home.
