Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first poem you wrote?
Yes. Unfortunately, the catalyst wasn't joy. My father was out on bail for attempted kidnapping (yes, he was insane and I mean that literally). The evening the police came to take him back to jail for threatening a witness (see, I told you...insane) I went to my room and wrote my first real poem. It was free verse and pure pain.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
"Charlotte's Web" connected me to the power of words. The way they could not only convey a moral but move a person from laughter to tears.

Even though we knew she wasn't going to survive, Mama still managed to laugh those final months. Her strength showed through, her passion for life, her gift for the absurd but mostly the immense love she felt for everyone around her was truly overwhelming. Mama asked me to write her story and when she closed those green eyes for the last time...I kept my promise.
