An independent business writer and translator, I run The Artisan Bakery School in Old Home Cottage with my partner, Dragan (he's a Croatian magician!). We love Dalmatia, and try to get back to the spectacular Adriatic coast at least once a year. An avid reader, I like American literature (Yates, Ford, Proulx,C.McCarthy), Scandinavian (Hamsun, Per Petterson, Peter Hoeg) and European classics including anything by John Berger. Dragan loves comedy of all sorts, from satire to slapstick. We both like French movies. Foodwise, we prefer organic if possible - I'm a passionate cook (!) and believe in the poetic possibilities of good wine. We are both pretty relaxed hosts and like people who stay with us to feel at home - there's nothing better than swapping stories after dinner, whether by the fire or in the garden.
