You've published fiction, poetry and non-fiction pieces and your voice as a writer shines through in all of them. Is there one form you most prefer writing?
Well, thank you so much! I have probably spent the most time writing fiction, though I don't know if I prefer it over non-fiction or poetry. It depends on my mood and what I read, but I like accessing all of them. Experimentation is very important to me.
You make some pretty fantastic collages. How did you get started with that?
Thanks! I actually started collaging after I attended a leaders' retreat at New York Writers Coalition. One person led a collaging workshop, and it helped nurture the little artist in me. I was struggling with my creativity and with stringing any sentences together. Collaging helps me feel playful and daring.
What can people expect from your reading?
I'm going to read a flash fiction piece about loss, parental expectations, and immigration. My stories are often long and sometimes funny, but this one is short and serious. I'm trying something new.
