Stella is the product of the union between a redneck and a daughter of a refugee from World War I. Her family lived in refugee housing for more than forty years. Had it not been for that redneck American GI, Stella would have been born in the same refugee housing.
You might find her on a bike, or at a coffee shop, or by a pool, or at the beach. Chances are she has her laptop with her. Look out! You may find yourself in one of her books.
