Fave book of ALL time: Two books that are complete and total opposites but have inspired me just the same: Weetzie Bat and Story of the Eye.
Person who inspires me the most: My mom, and my other two moms: Elvira and Dolly Parton.
What made me want to become a writer: Reading Jane Magazine and Weetzie Bat as a teenager.
Music I listen to when I write: I have a Spotify playlist mix called “Writing Jail” that has a ton of Mariah Carey on it. It puts me into a meditative trance.

Writers I look up to: Francesca Lia Block, Amy Tan, Cheryl Strayed, Jenny Zhang, Emma Straub, Maya Angelou and Jackie Collins.
