About me
I’m a writer and translator from Albanian to English. Four of my books are about Kosovo (‘Travels in Blood and Honey: becoming a beekeeper in Kosovo’ – 2011; ‘Edith and I: on the trail of an Edwardian traveller in Kosovo’ – 2013; ‘The Rubbish-Picker’s Wife: an unlikely friendship in Kosovo’ – 2015; ‘The Silver Thread: a journey through Balkan Crafsmanship’- 2017). I’m also the co-founder of The Ideas Partnership charitable NGO, a volunteer-based non-profit working particularly with the excluded Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities.

Why Prishtina
I love Prishtina’s youth – the capital of the newest country in Europe with a population of bright, creative young people. It feels like a big village with lots of relationships based on trust and hospitality.

Where else can you find me online?
