(? - ) Romanian economist, hotelier and author, variously resident in Sweden, UK and Greece. Her first novel, Under the Blue (2021), is set initially in a very Near Future England beset by Climate Change and a Pandemic; the protagonist of the tale, in the company of two women, leaves beleaguered rural Devon for Africa, via a depopulated Europe. At around the same time, at a research establishment within the Arctic Circle, conversations between scientists and an evolving AI are pointed to training/enabling the latter to make accurate Predictions about future Disasters. There is some sense between the lines that it may be easier to predict disasters – like pandemics – than to persuade the governments of the world to respond until too late. [JC]
