About Perrine Dailey
With a name inspired by a French book, The Adventures of Perrine, it was almost a given Perrine Dailey would become a writer.
Her inclination to write, however was nearly squashed, when At 3-years old, after crayoning “words” across the hallway walls, she was harshly disciplined. Her mother, a former English teacher, then began to teach her the specific rules of writing. The first rule: No Writing on Hallway Walls. Inspiration was restored.
Around the same age, Perrine lost most of her hearing due to a high fever from croup. She was soon fitted with powerful hearing aids and then sent into a gifted and talented educational system where she was the only deaf person in her school. To survive, she taught herself to lipread and speak without affectation, which meant mastering the most complex language on Earth: English.
Today, Perrine is a published technical writer of numerous articles about assistive technology, and a self-published author of erotic short stories, blogs, poems, and other works. With 15+ years editing experience, Perrine has covered a wide range of subjects from business correspondence to editing statewide and national publications, from assistive technology for people with disabilities to compiling a newsletter about rocks and minerals for Minnesota rockhounds. .
As a lifelong multimedia artist, Perrine is also self-taught in the areas of paper marbling, fractals, stone sculpture, photography, painting, stained glass mosaics, and jewelry.
Art is a guiding force in her life. She wouldn’t have it any other way.
