I love writing. It’s what I’ve wanted to do since I was seven. Also, the characters are like friends to me. It’s like they came to me to tell their stories. I’m the only one who really knows them, so I’m the only one who can really tell their stories. So I do everything I can to share their stories with the world, because I just keep telling myself that they deserve to be told. And if I don’t tell these stories, no one will. One of the saddest things in the world is a story that never gets told. If I don’t tell my stories, no one will ever have heard of Januari, Amycus, Loveday, Andromeda, Rosanna, Caroline… I could go on for a very long time. So I write not only for myself but for my characters. I do it for them, because they deserve to have their stories told.
