Tell us about your family
I come from a combined military family. My mother and both of my dads (biological and step) were all military, so discipline was a must. I am one of nine children between all four of my parents, and raised as an only child for most of my childhood. My brother and I lived with our grandparents while my parents were still in the military, so my characters typically have grandparents or value that relationship with them. Both sets of my parents are also interracial so my characters tend to be also.
How do you work through self-doubts and fear?
Honestly, I just have to get out of my head. I have to understand that this is something I love, and some people will appreciate my work, while it won’t be others’ cup of tea. As long as I feel like I put my own into it, I have to stand behind my work.
What scares you the most?
A large population of ignorant people. Unfortunately, I have been told my biggest fears have come true.
What makes you the happiest?
I enjoy doing things that will make others happy or laugh so hard until they pee or snort. I usually laugh so much until I get hiccups, but that’s when I’m happiest.
Why do you write?
I have to. Writing is therapeutic.
Have you always enjoyed writing?
Yes. I remember doing it in first grade and I loved it. My favorite part of elementary was free writing; just 10 minutes of non-stop writing.
What motivates you to write?
I truly love it. My mind is always running and creating. I’ll get an idea and I’m like, “I have to write it down immediately.”
