I love commuting between languages just like I love commuting between cultures and cities.
I find families intriguing, perhaps because I did not grow up in one. I was raised by a feminist, independent, single mother, a divorcee.
Books change us. Books save us. I know this because it happened to me. Books saved me. So, I do believe through stories we can learn to change, we can learn to empathize and be more connected with the universe and with humanity.
I spent my entire childhood observing people. I still do.
For me, writing stories is one way of feeling connected to the universe and God.
