Sveiki Rūta! Thank you for your wonderful books! Just wondering, as a fellow Lithuanian-American, how much growing up in Lithuanian culture, with its stress on learning/education, affects your writing process and especially the inherent research? Ačiū!
You certainly know Lithuanian culture well if you would mention learning and education. :) Yes, I feel my Lithuanian heritage definitely plays a role in my work ethic and dedication to research. Growing up, my parents constantly stressed the importance of education and lifelong learning. Ačiū for the great question!
