Smashwords Interview

Which adjective describes you best, and why?
Singular. According to, synonyms include bizarre, outlandish, eccentric, unordinary, and atypical. Anyone who has ever gone to high school has had days when they felt singular – out of fashion, not part of the herd, marching to their own drummer. It is a good thing some days and a curse on other days, but it’s never boring. It’s a great word to be applied to creative artists, especially writers.
What music do you listen to?
The presets on my car radio reveal that I alternate between the contemporary Christian station, the country music station, the golden oldies (from the ‘60s, ‘70s, ‘80s), and the classical. I do enjoy soft rock or folk rock, but I seldom am listening to whatever the rest of the world is buzzing about or performing on The Voice. I am a music lover and nearly always have a song to go with whatever I’m doing at any given moment.

    This debut anthology by gifted and elegant Colombian poet Luz Victoria Diaz is a treat for the heart and music to the soul. For native Spanish speakers, the beauty and eloquence of Diaz’s verse is touching and emotionally stimulating in all the best ways. For students of Spanish as a second language, the poetry of Luz Victoria Diaz is the best motivation ever to study hard in order to read more and more of what this talented and sensitive poet has to offer. The cover art captures the sweet sublimity of the book’s contents in a delightful way. I look forward to more of the same from Luz Victoria Diaz, the sooner the better.
