Interview with Nina Wirk

What’s the best thing about being a writer?
Roald Dahl put it best when he said:

“A person is a fool to become a writer. His only compensation is absolute freedom. He has no master except his own soul, and that, I am sure, is why he does it”
Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
I wrote this book trying to answer some of the most pressing dilemmas facing our society, such as: Who belongs? Who matters? What is our place in the universe?
How do you get inspired to write?
Reading amazing books inspired me to write. To quote Carl Sagan:

“A book is made from a tree. It is an assemblage of flat, flexible parts (still called "leaves") imprinted with dark pigmented squiggles. One glance at it and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, the author is speaking, clearly and silently, inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant epochs, who never knew one another. Books break the shackles of time ― proof that humans can work magic.”
What are you currently working on?
Nina Wirk I am working on a collection of short stories.
