RE: RARA-AVIS: Crime Fiction in Cuba

Hi Jose,

First of all, add my thanks for Outcast. I'm looking forward to your next book in English.

Which leads me to my question. You wrote:

"I finished a new novel, Havana Best Friends, in June 2001. Like Outcast, I wrote it in English. My agent will try to sell it in the US soon. HarperCollins UK will publish it next fall. I also penned two other books in Spanish, which later I translated into English."

Out of curiosity, what led you to write Outcast in English? The US setting of much of it? And I see, above, that you now switch back and forth. How do you decide which language you will use when beginning a new book?
