If you could have any author - living or dead - writer your biography, who would you choose?
It’s hard to choose but I always go with my gut on these prompts and the first name that jumped out was Isabel Allende. Coming in second would be Jack Kerouac. Isabel comes to mind because her book The House of the Spirits is one of my favorite novels ever and she seems to really be able to grasp and put to words the internal landscape of a woman with all our complexities.
She also understands the dynamics of those most important female relationships—sisters and mothers and grandmothers. The legacies we pass down to one another for better or for worse. And I want an element of magical realism in my biography. My life has been blessed with magic, moments so surreal they don’t feel possible, and I’d love her twist on my life.
