Name: Maite Viñuelas
Company: Ute Körner Literary Agent
Question #1: Where and when do you read?
I usually read in bed as it relaxes me before falling asleep. I also like listening to an audio-book on my way to work.
In my dreams, in front of a fire place… listening to the rain and having a big cup of black tea!
Question #2: Which book have you most given as a present?
I don’t usually give the same book as a present but if I had to choose one it would definitely be ELMER by David McKee. This is one of my favorite children’s books, full of color, short stories and amazing illustrations.
Question #3: Tell us the resolutions you have made for this year.
To start doing yoga, learning to breathe, relaxing more and to be more patient. That’s not easy for me as I’m always thinking of how to resolve things.
Going on a long distance trip with my 10 year old daughter – Costa Rica is at the top of the list! Travelling to a country where we can stay with local people and learn from each other.
Question #4: Tell us about a bad habit, an obsession or a particular attitude you have picked up since starting to work at Ute Körner Lit Ag.
At the agency: Checking and double-checking everything and writing down all the events on the calendar. Everything has a different color depending on the kind of event or task it is. The alarm bell sounds every day but I feel confident.
A habit: Drinking too much tea and having a delicious German biscuit when passing through the Agency’s kitchen
After work: Meeting with friends on Friday evenings has become a must in my weekly routine. Talking about everything and sharing experiences with each other is definitely our best therapy.
Ordering Japanese food is a kind of ritual that makes me feel happy and officially closes the working week. I love Japanese food!
