    Why did you want to become an author or illustrator?
    I wrote my first fiction story in the fourth grade. I wrote a story through the eyes of an ant. Raindrops became water bombs and the soles of feet were terrifying. It was exciting to look at my world through this new perspective. I fell in love with writing and haven't stopped writing since.
    Do you have any advice for future authors or illustrators?
    Write a first draft with a pen and paper. It allows you time to think as you shape each letter, each word. It is a powerful feeling writing a story down in ink.
