I think that any writer who is commercial, who sells a lot of books, has to face criticism. Because the more hermetic and the more difficult your book is, supposedly it's better.
Men's memoirs are about answers; women's memoirs are about questions. Most male authors want to look good in their memoirs and have a place in posterity, while most women know that posterity is what happens when you no longer care. Women want to connect with others here and now; they couldn't care less about legacy!
Everything I write has to be connected to my life. One of the things that always comes up in my writing is the search for freedom, especially in women.
I speak English and Spanish. I write in Spanish; my books are published in English.
