    Corine Timmer (a Dutch national) was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in 1967. Her father’s job took the family to various places around the world. Wherever they went nature was a constant comfort and inspiration to Corine. She studied Business and Interior Design and was active in the design world until an encounter on a dusty road in southwest Spain in 2014 between Corine, a baby boar, and an abandoned hunting dog inspired her to write and self-publish a children’s storybook. Along her journey she stumbled upon haiku online and has been hooked ever since. She currently resides in the countryside in the south of Portugal and writes full time.
