How did you know you wanted to be an author?: I have always been gabby, but it took the not-so-subtle prodding of the gods to get me to put pen to paper.
What is your advice for aspiring authors?: Dance around the room, sing, talk to your dog, do whatever it takes for you to burn off your self-critical heebie jeebies and get in flow. And write, write, write.
Do you have any writing rituals or practices?: Sometimes I have to be surrounded by noise, like music or being in a coffee shop, to help me settle down and get started.
What message do you want readers to remember?: Compassion is the only response to suicide.
