I am Dora, a part-time secular pilgrim who loves words, walking, and the world a great deal.

An author and illustrator by profession, an avid artist and hidden hedonist by nature, a fun-loving yet quirky person with a twitched sense of dark humor by chance.

My pet chinchilla and I live in a little white house amid banana trees in a tropical island.(Welcome to take a look at my artworks @

When I am not working, I like to walk — across the endless trails in the hills and islands near where I live, and across countries on planet earth.
