I'm Leila from Iran. I was a teacher in my country. I came here to publish my stories which mostly happened during my career.

I enjoyed your first story. It was an interesting mix of sexy and heroic. I am looking forward to reading more about your time in Iran and how you dealt with the daily hypocrisy in your life.

When did you move to Great Britain?

You can't get there from here, because when you get there you're still here and here is now there.

I will publish another story soon. I moved about three years ago.

I hope one of your stories will cover the changes you had to make, moving to a different culture. I always find the perspective of a new person to a culture on that culture fascinating.

On YouTube, I like to watch peoples' thoughts about the US and how things were different than they thought they would be. Unexpected adjustments to a new culture and views about how things were better, worse, or just different than they thought it would be.

Having been to several other places myself, I was always surprised about how truly uninformed I was about those places.

I would also be interested in your thoughts about what your homeland's future will be. I have known several people from different parts of Iran, and my wife's family has Iranian roots.

You can't get there from here, because when you get there you're still here and here is now there.
