Interview with Canadian Writers Abroad

A picture of some of my students in Korea, taken about 10 years ago
So this Q&A with me is up at the Canadian Writers Abroad website, discussing the genesis of Sad Peninsula, the expat life in Korea, and other topics. Here's a little snippet:
"I think it’s really important to make the point that when you write, you’re part of a larger picture. Your work fits in to not just your region’s literature or your country’s literature but really the literature of the world. I think living abroad makes you realize that there is a whole world out there that your work can be a part of. And you shouldn’t be afraid to branch out and allow your vision to be expanded by what you are seeing out there." Read the full interview here.
