Doris Leyden

Doris in a nutshell: First, I was born. What a traumatic experience that was, even for a German. It has shaped me forever. Then I moved to Canada. Very civilized country that, except for the geese. Later still, I moved to Sweden, which is a lot like Canada, but with fewer Canada geese and more herring. I live here happily with my dear husband Peter and our clever little Cavalier King Charles spaniel, Bijou. We believe in picking up dog doo-doo and disposing of it in one of the bins provided. My favourite routines are variations of learn, walk, exercise, read, explore, write, dream, learn some more. For a living, I write and edit. This is open to change at any moment, as it has been for about 25 years.
