Rainbow Book Reviews asked me some questions about my writing:
All my life, I’ve been fascinated by the relationships between fictional characters. When the existing fiction that I liked – historical, vintage mysteries, fairy tales – didn’t give me anyone who was queer or Jewish like me to work with, I made them up myself. I also grew up in a single parent household and a blended family at the same time – raised by my mother but also by my grandparents and aunt, and visiting my father, stepmother, and half-siblings far away – so the idea of family as a large and meandering web rather than two parents and X number of kids in a neat unit seeped into my writing as well.
The first thing I can remember writing was fanfiction in which I got to meet my favorite characters. I was six years old. As a fifth grader I remember writing long rambling narratives in my notebook about a girl who found a runaway girl living in the bushes outside her house.
