About Ch`erie de Perrot
A native of New Zealand, Cherie de Perrot travelled abroad to Australia in her late teens and lived there for 31 years, before moving back to her homeland in 2010. During her years living in Australia, she travelled a great deal both with Working and on holidays. The vastness of the land inspired her a great deal, as well as the people. As a Mother and an Humanitarian who cares a great deal for the welfare of other peoples lives and living conditions, the natural disasters that occurred, became very personal, thus many of her poetic writes, were inspired from such!
She also Married and became a Mother to Six wonderful children, which in itself was, and still is a huge challenge. No shortage of inspiration therein.
Ch'erie decided to once more travel back to her homeland of New Zealand ' Aotearoa' as it is known among Maori People, meaning 'Land of the long white cloud'! No exceptions there, it certainly can be seen as such when entering either by Airplane of Ship, quite magnificent to behold! This event took place after an 18 year marriage break down, so reconnection with her Family became essential!
Now living back in Australia, for very good reasons, there is much to inspire her, and so to the Quill once more, as life is experienced,and history is being written.
