Where cooking is my portraits, baking is my African Masks, the art in which I both excel and create, an activity that, like writing, drives something strong and creative from deep inside.
I got to sit down with my darling friend JN Welsh to discuss music, writing, research, and her new book, In Tune!
When it comes to weird, unhelpful or generally unusual talents, let’s see if you’ve got me beat.
I’ve always been a writer, a world-creator, a storyteller, but as I’ve grown into my interests and hobbies, I’ve come to learn that the more creative outlets, the better. Here are some of my favorites!
There is no right or wrong way to go about an interview, but I’m going to share some of my favorite techniques for better understanding, empathizing and, eventually, sharing my characters with the world at large.
Your own book release shouldn’t come as a surprise to you.
There was never a time in my life I wasn’t making up mad tales and then eventually putting them to paper, where my love for the idea turned into a love for the words themselves and then the craft and then combination of all three.
What would I be if I wasn’t a writer?
I have no idea.
Because no matter what we write, we must give some of ourselves over the story, to the writing, to the characters, the sacrifice every writer must make to get it right.
The truth is, I don’t need some special date or day to set goals or plans for myself.
The truth is, my imagination is often bigger than my gut. I’d like to think that if I ever got dropped into a situation, I’d take a deep breath and agree to some really cool things, but there’s a lot I know I’ll never get the opportunity to do.
And a lot I plan to do anyway.
