Scarlett de Courcier is a researcher in Psychology & History of Religion, looking into the linguistic development of religious terms and how they affect people's understanding of their own spirituality. She also manages an international network of publishers at a new media advertising company in London, and is a freelance proofreader, translator and writer. She loves all her jobs, but when people ask what she does and she replies “I'm in advertising”, she always looks down and slightly to the right.
Scar is sickeningly happily married, and lives by the sea with her husband. In her spare time, she likes to read (anything and everything, but a lot of crime fiction), cook, blog, swim, run, sit by the sea at night, sing, write poetry, and sit down with a nice cup of tea. She speaks French and English fluently, as well as Spanish, Italian, German and Romany to an intermediate level, and she has just taken up Sanskrit. She is a petrolhead and is hopelessly addicted to caffeine.
