Corina Duyn writes an almost daily diary in which she questions her world of illness. Exploring the challenges, but also the beauty she sees. It gives her a platform to plays with creative ideas. Her books Into the Light and Hatched are a distillation from these private words. Flying on Little Wings is a tiny book with photographs and words of wisdom from the birds. Cirrus Chronicles is a fantasy story created during short walks. From 1 January 2017 Corina started a daily Blog. Her next book, with abstract from her parent's diaries of life in Holland during the first half of the 20th Century, is due for publication in June 2017.
