Which character or part of the book was the most fun to write? Which part was the hardest?
The most fun to write was the Hood in Me. It was like trying to put a baby in a pool who couldn’t swim. I had to try to create this image with my nephew to come across hood when we had minimal skills in that area. We needed to come across authentic, and that was somewhat difficult. We had to ask a lot of questions to people who lived that life. Demetra introduces Alexis to teen chat rooms on the Internet, and they decide to post fake pictures of themselves. This story, The Price of Disobedience, was the most challenging for me to write. I based this story on what could have happened to my daughter if my husband and I had not been internet savvy. An older boy tried to lure her to leave with him, and I wrote this story to alert young people how easy it is for people to trick them and that some people use the Internet as a disguise for evilness.
Can you tell us something that even your most loyal fans may not know about you? I sing. I can sing, but I don’t do it much because every now and then, I have an anxiety attack, and when I stand in front of crowds, I may forget the lyrics, which is why I always keep lyrics with me.
