Ulrike Duran is German-Chilean, now living in beautiful Cornwall on the Isles of Scilly. With an MA in Creative Writing, she has various stories published in anthologies and a short play performed. When not writing, she might be busy teaching, tour-guiding or story-telling. Most of her stories are inspired by her heritage and quirky facts. Her favourite days are spent with her two children by the beach, swimming or looking for sea-glass.
