Why did you decide to write from American, Canadian, Maltese, and Libyan refugee points of view?

We live in a global world where we are all our neighbors’ keepers. My novel centres on three orphans, as well as a mysterious character whose origins are unknown, but are excavated during the story. Though the struggles of each of my characters have some commonality, there are also contrasts in what they face and grapple with in order to find out who they are and where they belong. I wanted to provide the rich texture of this multicultural, multiethnic world through the varied voices of each of my characters.
