Goodreads asked L.S. Kilroy:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

L.S. Kilroy The best thing about being a writer is the freedom to create whatever I feel like creating. And I think the potential to tell stories that shed some light on the human condition, that reflect social issues, that make people think and inspire a dialogue is, for me, what literature has always been about. People may think it's all just words and that writing is a secondhand experience and reading is an even more removed experience, but I really believe in the transformative effect of books...I mean, if books had no power, ignorant people wouldn't burn them, right?
