The books that I have written are mostly about the children. Are we born writers, artists, creators or does life lead us to it? For me, writing is a way of expression, sharing. I come from a scientific background, though I love performing arts and writing. Let me frame it in a different way: writing is my vessel to translate feelings and emotions and let them flow creatively.  ​(Barbara Hofmann)
