may I have the pleasure of your company at my garden party? There will be cake and ice cream and games. At night we'll light lanterns and we'll return to the time when we believed adults knew how to anchor the world, when summer lasted forever, followed by winter with snow and roasted chestnuts. Don't mind childish things if you come, though, and be ready to talk to animals. And plants. Come any time!
P.S.: Gifts are welcome, of course!!
A little about myself:
Hello there and thank you for visiting my website! I have lived in Spain, Mexico, France and the United States, but now make my home in Germany. I have a Ph.D. in Literary Studies and a Master's in TESOL, and have published several books for children, among them El Loro Tico Tango and El Fandango de Lola, a 2012 Ezra Jack Keats Honor Book. As a writer and an artist I'm in constant conversation with my own anxious mind even as I celebrate the joyful possibilities of our crazy, incomprehensible world.
