Guest Bio

La Chichita is a retired teacher who has been living in Sydney since the early 1970s. She arrived in Australia from Argentina as a migrant and since then, she has completed several university degrees as well as a post-graduate degree. She has worked in the education sector as a head teacher and at present, aged 73, she is still working as a teacher and as a professional Spanish interpreter and translator. She has also travelled extensively.

She has written several substantial pieces of educational materials in the past, but 'Dirty Laundry' is her first novel.

She was inspired by the works of several Latin American authors who wrote about magical realism and so experimented with concept. Her book differs from those as the setting, characters, themes, and storyline are original and markedly positioned in Australia. The plot derives from some life experiences coupled with an avid imagination.

"A great tale of blended characters and imaginings that I had to read it twice to catch the parts I missed first time around due to tears and laughter..! Wonderful! Made me reflect on the real values of life…"
