I don’t know how to speak. That’s why I write. Neither do I know how to dance, or tell jokes, nor am I the life of the party. I write because I hide. I like the sea, swimming, watching fish. Writing is like having one’s own sea, only that you can paint it the color you want, and dinosaurs, lanterns and ghosts can live in it. I write for children and teenagers because I was a child, I still am a child and teenager at the same time, I had children and was a child and teenager with them and now they have grown and I stayed anchored in my 12 or maybe 15 years. I write because I believe the boogeyman exists, but he’s not as bad as they say, and that has to be told.
