What books did you grow up reading?
I grew up with the Baby-sitters’ Club and the various intellectual properties of Francine Pascal. I did not appreciate literature until I picked up Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle at 18; then things changed.
What is the most challenging aspect of your creative process?
Being a mother and a peon in the capitalist economy, it is always challenging to find the time to write. However, I find the most frustrating obstacle to be the writer’s block that keeps me stagnant when I do find time to create.
What does your writing space look like?
LOLOLOLOLOL. It is my floor, covered in Cheerios and cat hair, upon which I will lay and attempt to type as my children frolic and occasionally knee me in the kidney.
Who is your biggest artistic supporter?
It is an even tie between my husband, light of my life, and those strangers in the Twitter literary community, whose feet I have never seen but who encourage my writing and my happiness like we have been friends forever.
