My Life in Fortune Cookies

A Collection of Poems by Dimitra Merkouris

Paperback - $10.99

Women's Poetry – Inspirational – Motherhood




My Life in Fortune Cookies is one woman’s collection of individual experiences as she navigates the drama of day-to-day life in the chaotic world in which we live. She is the daughter of immigrant parents. A healthcare worker trying to find an identity in a sterile environment. An artist seeking a creative outlet in an unforgiving society. A middle-aged student trying to figure out MLA format. Above all else, she is a wife and mother. Always, she is a mother, delivering her snippets of wisdom as fortune cookies baked to perfection.




Dimitra Merkouris began her writing journey in the world of children’s literature. She is the author of Darla Dilly Don’t Be Silly, benefitting the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation. Born in Montreal, Quebec, Dimitra devoted twenty years of her life as an anesthesia technician in the operating room of the Royal Victoria Hospital. She is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree at Queen’s University. Literature is her passion. She is happiest at home with her husband, three remarkable children, and small brown dog. She loves poetry, chocolate, and their new ragdoll kitten named Luigi.
