What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I grew up in a musical family, and music has always been big part of my life. When I decided to write “A French Girl in New York”, I wanted a book showing that classical music and pop music are compatible. And also, I thought it would be interesting to see this from the point of view of a French girl who’s never known anything else but classical music before moving to New York.
