Questions:

The author used to live in New York, where she quit her job. She went to southern Spain as a getaway to write a novel. Her name is also Alison Owings. She also speaks German as well as English.

2. What reasons does she give for embarking upon this book project? What are her motivations and what does she hope to accomplish?
