Laura Esquivel

My L is the Mexican author (and also a politician! as I found out while researching on her before making the portrait) Laura Esquival. I read her magical book “Like Water for Chocolate” two years ago and just this summer watched the magical movie that is based on it (the screenplay for which was also written by her). She weaves in fantasy in her writing in such a seamless manner and although she has been compared with Gabriel García Márquez, I think she has a distinct female voice which makes her even more interesting for me.
