My name is Amy Arora and I am a freelance writer and educator living in the South of France. Bonjour!
Subscribe to my fortnightly newsletter, ADVENTURES & ADVICE, here.
I love writing blog posts, personal essays and short stories. Check out my Writing CV here.
My novel, Missingh People, all about a woman who decides to search for the missing people in her life with the help of a private investigator, is currently in the first draft stages. You can follow its progress over on my Instagram.
I have lived in many different places around the world. I am British-Indian (Brindian, obviously!) and I have taught in schools in London, Tanzania and Singapore. Tanzania still has my heart. I am a trained teacher of English Literature and I have been teaching for a decade, after training with Teach First in 2012. I love writing about education.
The greatest gift you could give me would be uninterrupted time to read which, with a new quieter life in the French countryside, is becoming more and more possible. I believe that highbrow literary adventures should be enjoyed alongside ‘easy reads’ which is why I usually have two books on the go: something which makes me marvel at the cleverness of the writing and something which feels like a cup of tea and a biscuit at 4pm.
Note: See Currently Reading for book recommendations.
Philip Larkin said “What will survive of us is love” and I agree, but I also think that we leave our legacy in the stories we tell.
