Which character or part of the book was the most fun to write? I truly enjoyed writing about Lucy’s moments of healing as she participates in therapy. I loved writing the prayer she prays in the story that reminded me of a younger me. Which part was the hardest? Some of the dialogue was hard because I had to make sure I was not offending any of my readers in those particular categories.

Can you tell us something that even your most loyal fans may not know about you? When I was younger, I wanted to be an attorney like Claire Huxtable from The Cosby Show.
