“‘Meine Geschichte’ no doubt plays on the heartstrings of any parent. But in writing, it doesn’t matter whether you’ve parented a human before, you’re parented words. In Dee’s story, everyone gets the chance to recognize the familiar highs and lows of nurturing a creation and struggling to let it go.” — Jaime Dill, editor for Cardigan Press
What genres/age ranges do you typically gravitate toward in your writing?
My work is best suited to adults, since it features mature content, but I believe it also requires one to be a little “young-at-heart”.
In what way would you say your Byline Legacies story, “Meine Geschichte”, is similar to and/or different from your usual mature tone?
My work in “Byline Legacies” is very similar in tone with my preferred fiction writing style: weird, fairy tale-like, and femme-empowering. It differs from my other published works in that it is the first of this kind to be published. The bulk of my published works has largely been creative non-fiction. Though “Meine Geschichte” is a very personal story, with elements of my heritage and experiences as a parent woven throughout, it is most definitely a work of fantastical fiction that will resonate heavily with writers of all genres.
How can readers best support your writing career?
