About

Irene Pylypec suffers from Peter Pan Syndrome. And she’s OK with that. An avid reader since early childhood, Irene daydreamed of travel to foreign lands while tending sheep under the expansive living skies of the Canadian prairie.

She is passionate about travel, having caught the travel bug in the mid-seventies when she backpacked solo throughout the UK and Ireland. She’s a firm believer that to truly understand the world’s peoples and their culture, one must live and work in that unfamiliar environment. This belief took her on a journey to countries as diverse as Soviet Ukraine, England, Hong Kong and Mexico. Those travel experiences, as well as her formal education and workplace training, provided and continues to provide the needed fodder for narrative non-fiction storytelling.

Irene is a storyteller. She’s a self-published author, blogger, graphic designer/illustrator, ESL teacher, reader of books, former proofreader and avid gardener.

Oh…and she loves fine wine. And chocolate.

Her memoir, A Squatter in London, is available for purchase from Amazon. To read a sample, check out Amazon Canada Amazon UK Amazon US or on your country’s Amazon site.
