Most of my writing begins with someone speaking or singing and is performed on a stage, whether it’s a play, an opera, or some amazing weird thing in a bar. Sometimes my approach is more direct, like when I’m banging out columns for a newspaper. Lately I’ve been learning to take my time by writing a novel, a memoir. I live in Canada and the name is Latvian. Cosmopolitan stardust of European descent. For more detailed stuff about me, check out my website http://www.banuta.com.
