My work focuses on complicated relationships and characters and the difficult emotions that commonly arise from navigating them. It’s meant to show my readers that all types of relationships have bad seasons but most are worth the effort of trying to fix them… and sometimes it’s best to let them go. I often take inspiration from my own experiences and by observing the way people interact with one another. Writing with feeling and vulnerability has helped me to bring my characters to life.
