I have always written books that speak for the voiceless. I didn’t set out with that idea in mind, I just wanted to tell stories that helped kids see they could overcome the challenges. But my writing evolved that way and all four of my published books have that theme in common. I’m going to guess they were the ones published because the stories were written from a place in me that recognized how it felt to be dead. To not be able to say what I needed to say. To be afraid to speak up.
