Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Like two of my favorite singers ever - the late greats Sarah Vaughan and Whitney Houston - I was born in Newark, New Jersey. I lived in East Orange from about age seven to age twelve, and Irvington from twelve to fourteen. Most of my writings are influenced in some way by my experiences or those of close loved ones, so where I grew up greatly contributes to my writings.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing, when I couldn't get my mother to listen to me speak, as a middle schooler. She was making choices that I thought she was better than, but she'd always been one to talk at you more than with you. So, I began writing my thoughts in letters and poems, then slipping them under her door at night. She never verbally acknowledged them, but her behavior told me that she heard me...for a little while any way.
