Why do you write?

Justine Ettler Open PageBecause I love doing it and because at times I’ve been changed for the better as a result of reading great novels. Bohemia Beach is about a successful woman who is also an alcoholic. My love of Prague aside, I was inspired to challenge the novelistic cliché of the happy-go-lucky female drunk: bad things can happen to women who drink.

Are you a vivid dreamer?

Yes. I go through periods when I record them on a notepad I keep beside my bed. I dream of adapting my novel The River Ophelia for the screen.
