“I tell stories. I knit blankets. I drive my kid to soccer (sometimes we fly). I teach young scholars how to be amazing people/writers/thinkers/doers. I love pure and my intentions are good. I write and I read and then I write some more. I’m concurrently working on a work of fiction, a work of non-fiction, and a collection of short stories. I live just before the Catskill Mountains in the rural parts of New York with my husband and my three young humans.” – Tsahai Makeda
Here’s Quick Temper with Tsahai Makeda:
Why do you write?
I write because I have to. It is the thing that connects me to the truest part of myself. I also think I’m super magnificent at it.
Who do you hope reads your work?
Every person that can read.
Where does the anger in your work come from? How does it manifest?
Experiences where it comes from and ruminating in my thoughts is how it manifests.
