Bariloche, Argentine Patagonia
Born Nov-27-1970
I grew up in Argentine Patagonia, on an apple farm bordering the Neuquén river. Low hills across the river, then tablelands and prickly-bush steppes for leagues and leagues. I love nature above all, horseback riding, swimming in sweet waters, trekking and camping. At 18 I moved to Buenos Aires and worked as a secretary for a corporation. I resigned when I marrided my first husband. My eldest son, Robert, was diagnozed soon after with schizophrenia and died in an accident, aged 21 years. I studied Journalism and also worked for Francisco Erize, then president of the Argentine National Parks, under the dictatorship of Videla and company. My husband and I separated and I went to live on my own. My youngest son, Patrick, joined me soon after. While he was in high school, I worked as secretary at St. Andrews Scots School, which is bilingal. Soon after, I met my second husband, Carlos Grosso Brenner and he suggested I give up working and study any career I liked best. So I went to the University of Salvador -USAL- in Buenos Aires, where we lived. Patrick went to study Philology in Salamanca, Spain. He also worked as a teacher for a private school, The English House. When he had only three exams to obtain his degree, he was diagnozed with ALS/NMD and my daughter Diana fetched him and together with Carlos we cared for him in our apartment until he died, aged 29 years. I gave up my career and decided to write poetry, learning along the way in workshops. To earn my living I do English/Spanish translations from my new home in Bariloche, Argentine Patagonia, next to door to Diana. My husband died 10 years ago. I also continue to write some poetry, though I'm busy working on getting my book published.

Hi Steve! Thanks so much for visiting my web page. I'm glad you enjoyed the photos. If you wish to send me a photo, I can add it to the "Poets" slide-slow. I don't have much time to add stuff to my page, but well...it's there! I think your health problems must have improved, since you're very busy at MM now!! Congrats! Sylvia

Hi, Sylvia I just finished reading your web page great job there loved the photos. Just wanted to thank you for all the great comments and help you have given me, although reading back I seem to have not acknowledged a lot of replys. I had a long dry spell do to some medication problems, but i am back and hopefully will answer quicker and more often.
