Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
30 Days Time-out is my first
book and at this time I don’t know if I will write another book again.
I am a pianist, music theorist, teacher, speaker, besides being mom of 4 wonderful children. I love art and creative activities in general. My life has been very interesting until
now. Extra-ordinary, as I always
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The name of my book, “30 Days
Time-out: Journal of a
Paused Friendship” was inspired by my best friend’s decision to “punish” me, as an adult, with a time-out for 30 days. That unusual behavior inspired me to write a journal during these long 30 days: I kept talking to my friend through the journal, despite he was trying to control when and how I should have talked to him. Nobody will take us away the freedom of expression.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Yes: I mostly write on my phone or on paper. Then I edit on the computer.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
For this particular book I was inspired by Silvio Pellico’s “My Prison”
What are you working on now?
I am working on a parallel story of 30 Days Time-out, the untold truth about what has really happened during that same period.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I am still experimenting. I will probably answer the question in a couple of years.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write following your intuition.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
There is no right or wrong in what we try to accomplish, as we are all on the path of life.
What are you reading now?
“Emotional Agility” by Susan Davis.
What’s next for you as a writer?
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
only 3 or 4 books? I would surely bring with me the books I haven’t read yet and these that haven’t been written while I am answering this question.
