Tell us something interesting about yourself.
I like to cook and I’ll often take ingredients you wouldn’t think would work together and make a dish out of it. I tend to do that a little in my writing as well, mix things up a little and see what happens. More often than not it works out, sometimes it doesn’t. But the journey to the finished product is always fun for me.
