Author Interview – Cinta García de la Rosa


What is your favourite food?


What’s your favourite place in the entire world?

Oxford. I love that city. It gives me peace, it inspires me, and I write quite a lot anytime I am there. It is lovely to wander around its streets, feeling as if you were transported to the 14th century.

How long have you been writing?

I have always wanted to be a writer. Since I was very small, my head was always full of stories, maybe due to my compulsive habit of reading books. I have written stories and kept journals since I learnt to write, and I won a contest when I was 8. I wrote a story about the importance of taking care of the environment and I won. The prize was a collection of classic books and a desk. I have never stopped writing since then.

What genre are you most comfortable writing?

Contemporary short stories, where I can develop complex and deep characters.

Have you ever had writer’s block? If so, what do you do about it?

Yes, I have felt blocked sometimes. When I feel like that, I try to do different things, like reading or writing journals. When you stop stressing about the block, the words come back.

Can you tell us about your main character?

Little Nani is pretty much a reflection of my own personality. I write mainly short stories, but my stories were always about feelings, and they were starting to sound too sad and intense. I wanted to write something different, something reflecting my positive and smiling personality. I started writing, and the result was the first story in the book. Why I named her Little Nani? I worked as an au-pair in London long time ago and the little girls introduced me as the Little Nanny, since I was their nanny and I am very small.

Who designed the cover?

The cover was designed by my talented boyfriend, Mark Stone. I have never seen anybody designing beautiful covers as fast as he does. I’m very happy with my cover.
