Lavina Giamusso

Lavina Giamusso began writing when she was fourteen years old. She wrote sonnets and accounts of her adventures in West Africa where she grew up. Her favorite author then, was Molière. She wrote a critique of his work, “Tartuffe”, at the age of eighteen, which earned her an award in French Literature. Encouraged by her father to pursue a financially rewarding career, Lavina entered the oil and mining industries in 1970. However, she never abandoned her writing – she wrote a couple of novels in 2006-2007. In 1982, she moved to Australia where she began editing and writing in earnest in 1984. She was appointed Director of the Offshore Engineering Program at Monash University in 1989. While heading this program successfully for several years, Lavina edited numerous technical works and authored a couple of primers for the industry. Lavina returned home to Vancouver, Canada in 1994 and while fighting cancer, she retired in 2000. Now comfortably ensconced in her apartment, overlooking English Bay, Lavina devotes her time to writing, translating and editing the works of authors from across the world.
