« Thoughts From Heathrow | Main | Obrigado »



Hi Nick, it's Hena.
So I've read half of Edenborn so far. I really hate having school and work at the same time. But that one part of it, with Haji, Tomi, and Penny, dueling in the Louvre really touched me. First of all, you know how much I relate to Haji. But Penny's setting in the Louvre? Wow. I've been taking French for the past 5 years and I love their culture. And Tomi with her Japanese culture was amazing, since I'm a huge fan of Japanese things.
I'm so glad you have a blog now. Expect extra stalkage from me.

Good to hear from you, Hena. That scene in the Louvre was great fun to write, and I'm very happy with how it came together. Like yourself, I'm a fan of French art and Japanese culture, though I'm not fluent in either language. (In fact, I remember failing a French class back in junior high school.) Juggling school and work is never fun; I hope your schedule works itself out. And extra stalkage is fine by me.
