being a woman writer

"I love to write because it's a puzzle. It offers me the enigma of my life. How can I take a few nouns, a few pronouns some adverbs and verbs and adjectives and ball them together, make them stick so that I can fling them against a far wall and see them bounce? How…..how? It's exciting, its challenging...

I've of course come to know that art of any sort is created for all of us to encourage us to survive….survive! And do better than that - to thrive with some passion, some humour and some style.
