Why did you want to become an author or illustrator?

I love stories. They helped me through tough and wonderful times, and I’d love for someone to discover one of my stories when they need them the most.

Do you have any advice for future authors or illustrators?

The first draft of anything always sucks. Just write it and don’t stop until it’s finished. You can always make it better on the second or third draft.
