8 Questions with
Where do you draw inspiration from?
I draw inspiration from the divine/higher self for my best pieces. I write my best work when I work from my own intuition, creativity, passion for the subject, and experiences rather than drawing from the voices of others. When I get true inspiration from within, I can write from a deep state that feels like a trance. Originality and authenticity are important to me, and it’s one of the unique aspects of my writing that readers have told me they really love about my words.
You’re hosting a dinner party this Friday and can invite five people. The catch: These diners can be anyone, dead or alive. You also don’t need to know them IRL. That said, who are you having over?
My multiple personalities of course. But aside from those, I’d love to have Cillian Murphy, Grant Gustin, Michael Vartan, Priyanka Chopra, and Aishwarya Rai all in one room. For “research” purposes.
What was the last thing you read that moved you?
It’s a tie between: “Leave the man who breaks your wings / and uses them as crutches / just so he can learn to fly” and “I like to see the sudden doubt on his furrowed brow / as I use his weapons as boomerangs” – both quotes from this poetry collection.
If AIM was still A Thing, what would your away message be?
Busy making waves.
What would the title of your memoir be?
Good Girl Gone Bad. Not only is it reminiscent of a catchy Cobra Starship song, it also reminds me of one of my favorite pieces that I wrote for badass women.
How would your best friend describe you?
Hilarious, unique, fearless, and somewhat terrifying when necessary. A true Sagittarius.
Favorite word, and why?
If you could give one piece of advice to everyone in the world, what would you say?
Don’t wait too long to stand up for yourself and put toxic people in check. It’s one of the most spiritual and compassionate things you can do in the universe and for the people on this planet.
