What got you into writing?
"I've always been fascinated by stories, and I learned early on that telling stories was the best way to process how I was feeling at the time. It really was as simple as that.
Long story short, I suppose, I was fortunate enough to be surrounded by a community who supported me and helped me grow after I fell in love with the process of writing as well."
