What was your childhood ambition? I always wanted to be a writer. My fondest memories are of me locking myself away in my room, rewriting books I had read. My favorite story was Cinderella.
What inspires you? Life is my greatest inspiration. I love to see, hear, taste, touch and smell the world around me. If you really take a moment to embrace life, you will never come up short on inspiration.
Why Keilah West? This is a case of where art imitates life. I am one of the clumsiest people on the planet which is why I totally adore Keilah West. She is a world class klutz who gets herself into a lot of predicaments. I believe kids everywhere can relate to her story. My hope is that by reading this book, kids will learn to appreciate their own uniqueness.
What’s next? I have a series of picture books in the works – featuring the one and only Keilah West. I am super excited to share this lovable little girl with the rest of the world.
