What genre are you in?

Genre and Y/A Fiction with Hiromi Goto.

What inspired the piece you submitted to emerge?

The piece, Sunny, is the third chapter of the novel I am writing and the novel itself sprang from my exposure to the world of YA Fiction, allowing me to tell a story I have carried in my head for many years.

Where can we read more of your stuff? 

A related piece will be published in the upcoming New West Writer’s Anthology (potentially by December 2013). Beyond that, my goal is to publish my novel within the next year. Other works are still percolating in my head.

How has your writing process changed since starting TWS? 

My self-confidence has grown tremendously within the supportive community of TWS. I look at my work with a clearer, more critical eye and I am more willing to take risks. Writing has always been fun for me but now it is really fun.
