Do you recall how your interest in writing originated? My interest began when I was about ten and had to do a poetry assignment in class. I remember being shocked at how much I enjoyed it and how easily it came to me. From that moment I was hooked.
What inspires you to write and why? I’ve learned over the years to let everything inspire me. If I limited myself to only relaxing by the fire or being outside, I would’ve missed out on the beautiful times that have come at the most unexpected moments.
What genre are you most comfortable writing? Poetry comes the easiest for me and from a deep part of my soul. I’ve found extreme enjoyment in writing in fiction and will continue to grow that craft.
What inspired you to write your first book? After writing several poetry books I felt the need to grow into writing a novel. I wanted to challenge myself as well as felt the words already stirring.
Did writing this book teach you anything and what was it? Absolutely. I learned what I could do and what I could do better. It was a wonderful experience that continues to challenge and inspire.
How did you come up with the title? Barbed-Wire Butterflies felt somewhat poetic but also has a literal meaning. I will save the literal meaning for my readers but metaphorically it represents the beauty in these young girls who are also in a tough and ugly place. Beauty and pain wrapped together in one package.
