    Alex Haley and Maya Angelou are two writers whose work I admire.
    Why did you want to become an author or illustrator?

    I wanted to write about characters that were not well represented in print.

    Do you have any advice for future authors or illustrators?
    Write what’s in your heart. Also, be committed to your project until it gets done.
