I knew from a young age that writing was my calling. I have always turned to fictional characters to describe concepts or emotions that I have trouble facing in the mirror or discussing with others.
As the first in my immediate family to come out as gay (and FtM transgender) I grew up with a lot of confusion. I didn't know the words for what I experienced, nor did I understand exactly how I was different, only that I was.
I spent years telling myself stories in my head to explain the things I didn't understand, and over time, they developed a life of their own.
It's extremely important to me to represent a diverse range of characters in my work. In doing so, I hope others can discover aspects of themselves that they weren't aware of, or didn't have words for.
I believe that true growth is rooted in ones' understanding of themselves. Until we see our reflection clearly, we cannot begin to improve upon it.
