Known to most as Rett, Loretta Marie Perera has been a writer for most of her life. What started as birthday card poetry and primary school compositions that inevitably ended with "and then we went home, tired but happy," progressed to a career in advertising where she worked as a creative copywriter in her hometown, Singapore, a lifestyle reporter in Beijing, China, and then a journalist in Moscow, Russia.
During the day, Rett enjoys talking to and writing about a variety of people and their adventures with 3D scanning — ranging from scanning people’s faces for customized healthcare, bodies for fashion design, buildings for conservation and recently — a live and kicking horse, for art.
In the night and early morning, however, Rett also continues to work on her own creative projects, which now include poetry, essays, and most of all, her first work-in-progress novel, first conceptualised on a cold and unfamiliar winter’s morning in Russia, tucked away at a tiny table in an old apartment — any writer could tell you, a more perfect setting to begin a novel would be hard to find.
