"Andrea creates her stories from the point of view of the main female character(s). Her passion is to break the old operatic stereotype of the 'female victim' as seen through the eyes of men. This shift in perspective gives us the full story, as we experience these women for who they really are. It’s a process informed by history, actually her-story.”
