The Nuances of YA

This novel was born out of my desire to write a story set in a young adult psychiatric ward that was filled with humour, with teachings, with love, forgiveness, acceptance, and mirrored the real experiences of people who are dear to me who spent time in them . . .

Processing Through Structure

I am looking forward to receiving the gifts of feedback and observation from my mentor as we begin this mentorship journey. I am hopeful that by working with an experienced author (May Q. Wong) who may nudge me to question and to challenge myself, I will ultimately dive deeper into my writing and re-emerge truer to myself as a writer . . .

The Haunting of Creativity

My manuscript is a story that’s been haunting me for years. In a horror movie I recently saw, learning the name of the ghost renders it powerless. I feel writing this story will help me do the same; it will enable me to move on to other projects, and I may sleep better at night once it’s done . . .
