DR: You had a very successful and full career before you started writing. What was it about writing that grabbed you and had you shift course and, what was it about the subject ofAcross the Mekong River, in particular, that also grabbed you?
ER: I started writing, not until I was a lot older, but I had always wanted to write. I sort of dabbled in it as I was working. I did have another career and it was demanding. I had to earn an income. Then, as I got older and I had my son and I was just working part-time, I had the opportunity to do some creative writing and once I got going in it, I loved it so much. I wish I started sooner, but that’s the way life goes.
