Why do you write?
I’m a voracious reader. I’ve always read to understand other people, but I write to understand myself.
Who do you hope reads your work?
I write for anyone who needs confirmation that their feelings are valid.
Where does the anger in your work come from? How does it manifest?
It comes from my gut. From my pores. It claws its way out of my brain. Sometimes it’s a slap. Sometimes it’s more subtle.
