Lydia Lea Real is an instructor at San Diego Writers, Ink.

Interview with Sara Hasselbach by Anna Johnson

San Diego Writers, Ink: I see that you were an art historian and anthropologist. What got you into writing short stories and flash fiction? Cornelia Feye: For my work I write essays and articles about art and artists. This naturally evolved into writing short stories and mystery novels.
