About Angelina Souren

Angelina Souren is an earth and life scientist with sprinklings of law and bioethics. She's also a feminist.

She has written some quirky flash fiction that is somewhat reminiscent of the work of Spike Milligan and Donald Barthelme, and most recently wrote a booklet that addresses the new eugenics practices. The latter is also available as a paperback.

After secondary school, she worked in tourism and hospitality in Amsterdam. She quit her job in her mid-twenties and went back to school to become a geologist and marine biogeochemist (earth and life sciences). She’s been self-employed for a long time, and for example wrote for international science and technology magazines at EUR 55 per hour until she relocated to Britain, was associate editor and editor-in-chief of scientific newsletters, and board member of organizations for science and technology professionals. She has previously lived and worked in the Netherlands and the United States.

She is Dutchwoman who started writing stories and articles in primary school. In her teens, she sent a letter to a national weekly, and it was published. In her early twenties, she sent a letter to one of the writers of women’s weekly Libelle and submitted an item to women’s weekly Viva. Both contributions were published. In her mid to late 20s, she regularly sent letters to the editor of Dutch daily De Volkskrant, responding to articles in the newspaper. Almost all were published, most of those in the Saturday edition. In her early 30s, she sent a letter to an American newspaper. That too was published.


Tiptoeing like a fairy in a beautiful garden
This is more or less what it feels like when I write these little stories...

A silly video to go along with Mixed Spices
A booklet like Mixed Spices deserves a silly video to go along with it. Seriously, though, not everything in Mixed Spices is silly. The story of the tomato growers certainly isn't for example.

This one also fits very well
Speaks for itself
