    Beautiful, thank you.
    I write several genres: mystery, science-fiction, fantasy, historical fiction… but what I love the most in this video, is that someone else — in a wheelchair like me — also believe that writing is magic.
    I’m sorry he can’t read Balzac in French, or Lorca in Spanish, but he reads and that’s all that matters.
    Have a great week.
