In 1998, an extended summer holiday led Genevieve White to fall in love. The objects of her affection were a beautiful town on the Hungarian Plain and teaching English as a foreign language. Genevieve went on to teach in the Hungarian town of Szentes for three years, working at a private language school and a state secondary school. Since then she has taught in Romania, China and various UK locations. Genevieve is now based in the wild and windy Shetland Islands where she teaches ESOL in a centre for community education.
