Trans, queer author, DJ Small, is a writer who creates stories about characters from various backgrounds and are a part of the LGBTQ+ community. He strives to portray a world where an individual's sexuality, gender, or race are insignificant. There are times where such topics will be a point of drama for the character, but not frequently. DJ only wants to create fantastical worlds, and come up with a good story about two people falling in love. If this is a radical idea, then call him crazy.
Describe your desk
For writing, I'm typically lounging in my bed or some place random. Desk are restrictive to me. However, the flip side to this is if I'm editing, I'm at my desk and it's covered in Arizona Green Tea cans and snacks.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the middle of nowhere Virginia, so like the closest friend to me was like two miles down the road. And when you're a queer-identified kid it's even further. That being said, I created worlds when I was younger where the characters were queer-identified and they had friends close to them that understood their struggles and the life they live.
