I think it’s a great honor to be part of a new and thriving literary movement.
It was important to me to be completely honest—especially to teen readers!—about the struggle to make good choices in a world metaphorically and literally on fire.
Committal grew from a hybrid lineage of media.
I also have learned a great deal from other writers, whether from reading their work or receiving (generous) feedback.
True crime is very much a part of the larger story of my medical trauma.

I write about the things that keep me up at night.
Good surrealism, in my opinion, is the same way. It manifests itself in a dream-like or what we may consider non-real/fantasy elements and yet forms a connection to our reality.
I didn’t realize I was writing a book of stories until very late in the game.
Just because we do not fit the majority, it should not mean we are any lesser.
