Interview with Febe Pepe

When did you first start writing?
When I was in elementary school I wrote my first poem.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Brooklyn, New York. I think my experience there has influenced my writing a lot, mostly when it comes to writing my poetry.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story behind my latest book is a about a asexual aromantic woman who also prefers dating women. In my book "CONTROVERSY" she struggles with trying to fall in love with her partner, and her partner ends up becoming severely frustrated with her. Its basically a poetry about love, pain, and heartbreak.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love how it makes me feel when I write, as if I'm letting out emotions and energy that I couldn't let out by just speaking. Its more of an outlet to me, that's why I enjoy so much.
What are you working on next?
I'm working on another poetry book, it going to be pretty long. Its about a woman who is very isolated, and that's all I'm going to say on that.
Who are your favorite authors?
Octavia Butler, Chloe Thurlow, Terry McMillan, Issa Rae, Jeff Kinney, Sylvia Plath
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Knowing that I'm going to get food soon.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend my time doing college work, working on Youtube, admiring art, and reading.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I usually go on bookbub, they have a lot of eBooks there on sale or free.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I ever wrote was a supernatural story. I didn't like it much when I finished it.
What is your writing process?
I don't really have one, I just write whenever I want to.
What do you read for pleasure?
Erotica, I love it so much because it always puts me in a good mood when I'm feeling down.
