What themes do you like to write about? Amazing moments of fractured light.
 
What books and/or stories have most resonated with you as an author? Why? How do these stories and their characters find expression in your work? 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. It reinforced the use of the magical/fantastical that I preferred in my poetry.
