Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Algeria when it still was a French territory. I experienced very soon different influences, different cultures: Jewish, Arabic but also Spanish and French as my family came from Spain. All these people (at least around me) lived peacefully. My book is about what makes people similar despite cultural differences. In fact everybody was searching the same thing during this time, i.e. a decent life.
When did you first start writing?
My first book was in 2004 after my first experience in the United Nations system. I was confronted to corruption and violence (inside the organisations) and I felt the necessity to write for testifying and trying to change things.
