What got you interested in your field? Have you always wanted to be an artist?
I always knew I wanted to write for the rest of my life. I didn’t always know I would write for children and young adults.
Do you have any kind of special or unique signature, symbol, or feature you include in your work that you’d be willing to reveal?
Hmm, I don’t think so! but if you find it, let me know!
What advice would you give young aspiring artists?
have something finished!
Where on the spectrum do you identify?
oh, hey, cool so we’re getting right into it! I’m in between demiromantic and demisexual.
Have you encountered any kind of ace prejudice or ignorance in your field? If so, how do you handle it?
I haven’t, but that does not mean it doesn’t exist!
What’s the most common misconception about asexuality that you’ve encountered?
That I just haven’t found the right one! Or that I’m actually just gay or that I’m emotionally scarred, etc. Ah, what haven’t I heard!
What advice would you give to any asexual individuals out there who might be struggling with their orientation?
Embrace the journey. It’s okay to not know. It’s okay to know! It’s ok if what you think you know changes. no matter what, your identity is valid.
Finally, where can people find out more about your work?
