Member Since
December 2016

Petra Jacob had her first book, Riddled with Senses, published by Dr Cicero Books last year. It's a magic realism tale of love, drugs and witchcraft.
She has just self-published the book Peddling Doomsday, which is about a cult run by a charismatic female leader.

Many years ago she obtained a first for writing and art from Manchester Metropolitan University. During her haphazard life she's lived in a condemned bedsit in Cambridge, a gated community in Mexico City, a rain forest in Central America and a derelict haunted house in South America. Currently she works as a gardener in Central London, but likes to escape to the jungle whenever possible. Jacob has a particular fondness for monkeys, slime mould and cake.

I liked this! It was simple and straightforward, covering all the basics without getting confusing. I did a few of the positions and found them energising too.
