Are your characters entirely fictitious or have you borrowed from real world people you know? This is not epic fantasy, Tijodrin is not saving the world after all. About Writing […]

Self-discipline. But once it became this world with characters that felt real, I was like, oh, maybe someone else will like it, I’ll indie publish. But to describe who I think would most relate to the story, it’d probably be a young adult girl who has dealt with some familial strife and/or felt like they […]

What came easily? There’s a lot of porn involved. I was taking graduate classes at the University at Buffalo, mostly due to boredom, and some of the research from those classes took me into the realm of privacy. George Carlin, Charles Bukowski (or at least, the David Duchovny version of Bukowski from “Californication.”) Bill Hicks. […]
