I write because I have something to say about the world we live in and the one from which we are trying to escape. Television, film and books – amazingly enough, do both at the same time.
Believe it or not, there are stereotypes that need to be pummeled, stories without any voice that need to be shouted and people struggling in dark places that need to see a glimpse of light. I write to illuminate characters that others are uncomfortable with or don’t ordinarily see. I write and spin tales that people can relate to, ones that make them think: what kind of human being are you, more importantly, what kind do you want to be? I write to entertain and hopefully educate. I write not necessarily to change the world but to make a small piece of it a little bit more coherent. Quite simply, I write because I have no choice. It is what drives me, what makes me… me!
