For those readers who have not yet bought your book can you tell us what to expect from it?
The book goes into the story of the Tango, so how much research did you have to put into writing it?
When did your love for Tango begin?
When did you decide that you wanted to look deeper into the dance?
What was it about the dance that hooked you so much?
Buenos Aires - it is still the capital of tango, even if some people prefer Berlin or San Fansisco. Buenos Aires is still the only place where you can walk into a club and see history and society in motion - all ages, all kinds of faces, every social class and occupation. And these days, every nation too - because tango tourism and tango immigration to Buenos Aires have become a real phenomenon in the last 10 years.
You have danced around the world in places such as Berlin, where is you favourite place to dance the Tango?
What was the most suprising thing you learned along the journey?
I like writing - and reading - memoirs, biographies and novels that take me into another world, make me dream, think, feel, and reveal to me something new and mysterious. This is what I hope to do for readers with TWELVE MINUTES OF LOVE and also with my mystery novel VILLA PACIFICA.
You have written a lot of tourism books, do you have a preference between this and novel writing?
From reading. I was a passionate reader from childhood. Writing my own books is an extension of that.
When did your flair for writing arise from?
What is your advice for those wanting to write books surrounding something that they are really passionate about?
Find a context and a focus for your subject (you can't just write about anorexia, or about motherhood, or about Africa), and go for it. Be prepared for a long journey, and don't expect quick publication. Prepare to live with your project for a few years. But do go for it - writing, even just for its own sake, is tapping into the source of your deepest self. And it's fun!
