The Four Chambered Heart is my homage to the writer Anaïs Nin, who has helped to shape my thinking for years. The heroine of the novel is Nin’s alter ego, Djuna, that documents her emotions and passions, her thoughts and decisions and her doubts and sacrifices. Nin used the experiences of her own life to weave her novels and was able to integrate her femininity with her independence and wrote intimate and psychologically perceptive novels on the nature of women. These complex threads unite all women, making the feminine principle of love and sexuality more visible and conscious.
