Corine TimmerCorine Timmer

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.
