Please, share your thoughts about the future of Literrature:
Gelda: I think that, as the word is always in motion, so is Literature, which encompasses all words, with their meanings, grammar and expressions. Thus, Literature also adapts to the possible changes that etymology and grammar require. I have started writing about 20 years ago.
The Good and the Bad. Who is winning in nowadays?
Gelda: The human being is endowed with a conscience that directs to what is good or bad. The choice will always be ours. If we look at the world, we will fall into the temptation of thinking that the winners are always those who, due to their banking status, command nations… But, if we look at the eyes of Faith, we will realize that the winners are always those who have empathy, generosity and compassion for another
How many books have you written and where can we find your books?
Gelda: Last year I started writing my first novel and a collection of poems and intended to release them last year but in the process my old parents got sick and it has taken up a lot of my time. So, I hope that by the end of this year I will actually be able to do it.
The book, e-book or hardcover book…What will be the future?
Gelda: We live at the amazing speed of Technology, where everything changes very quickly. I have no idea what will come, I just know that we must always be up to date with new tools that help spread reading.
A wish for 2023.
Gelda: I wish it to be a year full of Grace and Blessing. May human beings love more, forgive more, help more and grow upwards in all their potential.
A phrase from your book:
Gelda: “It was a spring morning like so many others, if were it not for the unforgetabble encounter with that Arab man…”
