1. Kosta: What is the main message you want to communicate through your art or writing?


When I write, I don't think of a message to communicate. I hope that the story I tell or the poem I write conveys something or allows the reader to relax while reading my books. 


2. Kosta: What was your biggest challenge in your artistic or literary career and how did you overcome it?


I think it was to find the courage to let people read what I was writing, I was very young and my shyness blocked me. The first step wasn't easy... But then it got better.


3. Kosta: Can you tell us about a significant experience or a moment that inspired you in your artistic or literary career?


Inspiration for what I write is all around me and within me. Everything can be useful to have an idea or a starting point from which to write a story or a poem. And when a reader tells me that he liked one of my books... Then I know that I did my job well as an author and I'm happy about it.


4. Kosta: How would you describe your art style or writing style?


It depends on the genre I write. I think I've developed, for the most part, an "essential" and visual writing. 

Let me explain, the poems are written, for the most part, in a particular style that I call visual, in which I try to say a lot through a few words and I write them in a very particular way.

In books, whether they are fiction or thrillers or other genres, I visualize in images what I write and this also passes through the page and I believe that the reader perceives it. I never put too many descriptions but I love dialogue. And my writing is very female, the protagonists are mostly women.


 5. Kosta: What is your creative process when you create artwork or write?


I don't have a real method. It depends on what I write and the time I have at that moment. For thrillers and mysteries, being serious, I had to create cards. In general, I develop the idea from my head to the written sheet, broadly speaking, I make an outline but then it's the characters that sometimes take me in a different direction than I thought or the story develops a little differently from how I had thought of it.   


6. Kosta: Is there an artist or writer that you particularly admire or who has influenced you?


I have many who at different times have given me something or made me grow. Some of them I have even mentioned in my books. 


7. Kosta: Do you have any future projects or new works in the pipeline that you would like to talk about?


Sure... I have a book to review for a future publication, another to start and another to reread before presenting to the publisher. Not to mention the many ideas that buzz through my head and are just waiting to come to light. My problem is the time, not the material.


8. Kosta: What advice would you give to anyone who wants to pursue a career in the art or writing world?


First of all, believe in it and don't give up in front of the first obstacles. Learn to improve yourself and read. Don't be afraid of confrontation and be wary of fake publishers.


9. Kosta: Is there anything else you'd like to share with readers or highlight?


Never stop believing in your dreams and work hard to make them come true.


Kosta: Thank you for the interview. I wish you all the best for your literary career.
