A Moving Landscape, A Memory in Poetry of a Life Overseas

Jo Parfitt

Living abroad in France, Dubai, Oman, Norway and the Netherlands, author and journalist, Jo Parfitt, has compiled here, an anthology of the poetry that has ‘saved her life’ during the 20 years she has been on the road. This is a memoir in poetry of a life overseas. Join the author on her journey through culture shock, repatriation, motherhood, the world of work and self-discovery as she shares the moments when she was on top of the world, in the valley of shadows, and many places in between. This is a book in which expatriates everywhere can find themselves.

I have run my own business since I was 25, largely because I am a serial entrepreneur and cannot survive without the variety provided by being self-employed. After 10 years living and working abroad, we returned to England in 1997 and Summertime Publishing was born. In 2005 we moved to The Hague, then to Malaysia in 2014 and now back in the Netherlands. I have developed a business based on writing, publishing, mentoring and teaching what I know. I know how to write, how to publish, how to run a business despite international moves, how to network and how to live abroad. I find countless opportunities to change lives through my writing, teaching, speaking and mentoring and love nothing more than to 'share what I know to help others to grow'.
