I can promise you that women working together - linked, informed and educated - can bring peace and prosperity to this forsaken planet.
I never thought that I would come to live in the United States. I was not pursuing the American dream.
I write until the first draft is finished, and then I feel that I can get out. But, during the time of the writing of the first draft, I don't go out. I'm just locked away, writing. It's a time of meditation, of going into the story.
When I write fiction, I never try to deliver a message; I just want to tell a story. But I admit that I want the story to be memorable and the characters to touch the reader's heart.
