I think growing up is difficult and it’s a process that I’m always interested in with kids and adults they are often on two different universes.
Mothers always find ways to fit in the work – but then when you’re working you feel that you should be spending time with your children and then when you’re with your children you’re thinking about working.
All the characters in my books are imagined but all have a bit of who I am in them – much like the characters in your dreams are all formed by who you are.
I feel more influenced in my own work by dreams than I do by other writers’ works in a way. Or by popular culture movies – what else is there to write about than love and loss?
