My goal is to create books with complex characters of diverse genders, races and ethnicity, each having the opportunity for self-examination on a deep, personal level while facing realistic life challenges.
The tales are peopled with characters whose details are drawn from personal experience and interactions with people from different backgrounds to understand and respect their physical, cultural and emotional lives. From this, fictional characters are created who stand against prejudice and harassment, promote dignity for everyone, confront bigotry from sexism, racism, misogyny and religious intolerance and discover strength inside when hope fails.
