Magic in real life


In Brida, a book of mine that will be published in various countries (from March onwards), I describe magic as a bridge between the visible and the invisible. This leap can manifest itself in very simple ways. One of the examples that I give in the book is when the main character is asked to draw or write meaningless words while talking on the phone. Have you ever had experiences of “leaps into the invisible world” while doing something completely common?

Today’s Question by Aart Hilal

So many times you talk about very serious issues, yet you use everyday words which are familiar to most people – to people who may not even realize their true meanings. Have you ever given any thought as to what is the secret of your literary success?

There is no such a thing as a secret to success. I try to talk directly because I believe that God talks directly to us, without using complicated words. God has sense of humor, why shouldn’t I?
