Interview with Paula Torres-Berry

Describe your desk
My desk is an old-fashioned wooden thing, which has drawers that refuse to open if the weather is balmy.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born in Tennessee, however, we moved until we landed in Michigan where I attended King Street school in second grade. I often wrote to my grandmother who still lived in Tennessee.
When did you first start writing?
At the age of eleven, I began writing letters to my grandmother.
What's the story behind your latest book?
A young heroine (who does not know she is a heroine) discovers she has far more to offer during the height of World War II.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love watching the "story" form in my imagination. As I share the essence of the characters personalities through story, I hope the reader can identify and relate to situations where decisions are made for good and bad.
