Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, I wrote it when I was in High School. It was a short story called "Into The Fire". It's about a girl struggling internally with the existential challenges of finding and understanding her place in the world. Her angst focuses on people our culture discounts or ignores, especially the homeless whom she feels a kinship with, from the standpoint of herself wanting to disappear or fade into the tapestry of society. There, she believes she could experience true freedom and enlightenment. One night, she gathers with vagrants near an expressway underpass and while immersed in song and talk unknowingly sets herself on fire. As she burns and dies, she has the realization that in that moment she is the most liberated and empowered she's ever been.
What is your writing process?
My writing process is intensely cerebral. I lie down on my back, close my eyes and envision how the characters behave, speak and act. My visions complete the scenes and then I wake from my semi-coma to write down what I saw inside my head.
We All Come Back, but only a few of us get to choose who or what we return as. This graphic novel is a sci-fi, psychological thriller trilogy. We all wonder what happens after we die. This story takes its reader on a speculative reality adventure that confronts these questions through its characters’ past lives on Earth and present life in Transitory. 1 Soul. 7 Lives. No One. No Thing. Ever. Dies.
