Cristina-Monica Moldoveanu


I began to write poems in childhood, then, after a scientific education, I restarted to write poems when I was 36 (in 2007) and then haiku in 2010. I also translated some of my poems in English.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the countryside, precisely in two places: near Bucharest, the capital of Romania where I was not spared of work in the garden and in the fields and in summer and winter holidays somewhere in the countryside in a small and obsolete village in Southern Transylvania. This was maybe the deeper influence in my writings. My writing flowed or sometimes overflowed because of the green memories and the childhood river's water.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My poems are my own creations even if they are translations of my own poems that I wrote earlier in Romanian. I worked a lot to improve my English skills, and, though they are not perfect, at least they are a true image of my own self. I tried to share here on Smashwords a part of my creative process, choosing the poems by myself. My fourth and latest book here is an addendum to the third, because it comprises poems that were left outside the third, poems that I translated in the last few weeks.
