Where do you see you and your blog in 5 years?
In five years I see myself living back in the States and writing full time. My blog will be a way in which admirers of my book(s) can get a closer look at my personal opinions, experiences, and beliefs. The blog will also serve as a space where I can publicize new publications and speaking events.
