Interested in creative writing? Or perhaps on enjoying a good book? We hope you like this video!
We had the opportunity to speak with Argentine writer Viviana Rivero, an icon of the historical-romantic novel. Viviana is an award-winning author who publishes her books in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Uruguay, Spain, Italy, and other countries. During our conversation, she spoke about her latest novel, “A bright and shining light,” – or “Una Luz Fuerte y Brillante” in Spanish – about how a story is born, about her career as a lawyer, communicator, and author, and also about the importance of finding our passion in life.
