I do not write for the market. I write what I want. Some people say that is a sign of the amateur. It used to be the mark of an artist.

I do not write the realistic novel of character. That is bourgeois. I am not interested in the bourgeoisie. I do not write for them and I do not write about them.

I want to write about universals.

I do not write literature. Literature is verbal and intellectual. Literature is for professors. What I write is passionate. It is imagined.

I write about suffering. I write about abuse. I write about trauma. I write about oppression.

I do not write genre. There are no models. I write what I need to write.

I write from the heart.
