Author Interview – Diana Bocco

When you get free time on the internet or you go to the library – what do you want to read about?

Free time? What’s that? When you live in a non-English speaking country, local libraries tend to be a little short on good reading material. I do have a Kindle, though, and I’m always reading something.

Do you find the time to read?

I make it. Especially when I’m writing a novel, I find that I crave reading even more.

Who do you admire?

People who don’t follow the rules. Those who do daring things regardless of what society thinks.

What is your favorite quote, by whom, and why?

Surprisingly, it’s not a quote from a writer. It’s by Margareth II, Queen of Denmark. The quote goes: “I have always had a dread of becoming a passenger in life.” I’ve tried to live my life by that motto: take the wheel, make your own future, don’t let life just take you along.

What are you most proud of accomplishing so far in your life?

The fact that I’ve never let fear stopped me from doing what I want to do. Moving to a new country, diving into a new career or just trying things that terrify you (like learning to swim in my case)… these are all adventures for me. I’m proud of myself for never letting fear stop me. I had a friend tell me once that it was easy for me to do all these things because I was obviously fearless. I thought she was crazy! I’m not fearless. I just don’t let those fears stop me from doing the things I want anyway.

What is your favorite food?

Oh, junk food – which is not something you should be hearing from somebody who has a background in fitness and nutrition! On the other hand, I’m a vegetarian, so at least I have a limit on what type of junk food I can eat. When I lived in Hanoi, there was this little vegetarian restaurant that served the best fake meat I’ve ever tasted in my life. They had dishes like “roasted duck” and “crispy chicken wings” (made with no real meat, of course) that I absolutely adored. I would go back to Vietnam just to eat there again!
