I think the best way to understand my work is to put yourself in my character’s shoes. I always make sure to make my characters feel real despite their fantasy setting and try to have them behave as humane as possible. No character is truly good or evil. I think I’m doing so, I’ve grown as a person and have made so many discoveries about myself through my writing! Finally, I think what makes my work so unique is that each character directly relates to me or something that’s happened to me.
