What's the story behind your latest book?
I started writing micropoetry a few years back. It's a great way to express emotion in a quick, punchy way. Very quick catharsis. Coffee and Anti-Psychotics is a collection of my favorite ones.
When did you first start writing?
When I was 16. The seeds were planted before that, though. When I was first diagnosed with depression (around 14 years old), I played this game called Max Payne.The title character's inner monologue was beautiful and tinged with pain and really resonated with me. After that, I wanted to create similar works.
