Juuh Palmeira asked Penelope Douglas:

How do you feel knowing that your story is read worldwide, that people liked it? It must be crazy.

Penelope Douglas Hi, Juliana,

It is crazy! It's easy to get caught up in your own world and forget that millions of people are carrying on out there with their own lives, loves, and struggles, but when I think of someone so far away--Russia, Greece, Australia, etc--it's so weird to think a nobody from Iowa wrote something that is part of their lives, even if it's just for a few hours. It's humbling, and it goes to show that our love for art, in any form, connects all of us.

Thanks for the question!
Penelope Douglas
