Karena Akhavein

Biography

Christina Desroches’ academic passion stems from my own: I used my research, as well as my own original- and first ever- translation of La Vida de Santa Enimia by Bertran de Marseille, from my PhD thesis "Reman say in aquesta terra": The function of translatio in the Occitan Vita of Saint Enimie, (Columbia University, 2002) to drive the action. I am currently working on my second novel, Lacrima Dyonisi, a thriller exploring the link between wine and the sacred, featuring some of the same characters. I occasionally like to drag my nose out of dusty tomes in order to enjoy my parallel existence as a painter-illustrator and a fashion, food, wine, and travel writer whose work has appeared in SOMA Magazine, BEast magazine, globorati.com, and Quintessentially Magazine, among others. I currently live in Northern California with my husband, two children, and two dogs.
