How did you know you wanted to be an author?: After I started writing poetry when studying at NYU, already in my twenties - quite late
What is your advice for aspiring authors?: write because you have to, because it is your passion, not because you want to earn money - that may come later.
Do you have any writing rituals or practices?: regularity is the name of the game, whether you feel like writing or not. It's not always easy.
What message do you want readers to remember?: that I speak to them, that we are in symbiosis; of course you can't please everybody. All tastes are in the world.
