Originally from Ireland, Slevin has been living in Sicily for almost ten years with her husband and their two children, where she has found a way to bring together her passion for music and words.
She studied Law and Spanish and French in Bristol during the trip-hop apogee and holds a Masters in Anglo-Irish Literature from University College Dublin. A classically trained pianist and cellist, she is singer-songwriter with Crustation on the album, BLOOM, and is currently involved in songwriting projects in Italy, France and the US. As cellist and singersongwriter, she is the fifth element of Sicilian folk band, Disorient Express.
Slevin has written three novels. Water Will Find its Way is self-published on Amazon. Montecastro Street is with literary agents, and Language Games is work in progress.
Having lived in Spain and Tuscany and backpacked alone through South America and West Africa, she has reached this conclusion: from Bristol to Brazil, from Andalusia to the Andes and Dublin to Dakar… nowhere has been as challenging and full of contrast as Sicily.
When she isn’t writing music or books, you can find her at school teaching languages, outdoors on the yoga mat or with her family by the sea…
Sicily inspires her on a daily basis.
