Delighted to welcome writer and podcaster Louise Ross to the Bookshelf with her books.
Meet Louise Ross
Louise Ross is a writer, speaker and podcaster originally from Australia. She has lived abroad since the mid ’80s, first in the U.K. and France, followed by the United States, where she completed graduate studies in Jungian Psychology. In 2014, she moved to Portugal and from 2015 to 2017, Louise was President of the Executive Board of International Women in Portugal (IWP), a social organisation with a fluctuating membership of 250 to 400 expatriate and immigrant women.
In 2019, she published, Women Who Walk: How 20 women from 16 countries came to live in Portugal. Women Who Walk explores the questions: What compels someone to leave their country of origin? What happens to them on the journey to the new place? And what causes them to land somewhere and decide to stay if not for the rest of their lives, then for an extended period? Because of the universal nature of ‘the journey’ the women take upon leaving their country of origin, Women Who Walk has appeal for expatriate and immigrant women everywhere.
