With most YA and NA romance and chicklit books, there aren't enough confident protagonists who are comfortable with who they are and, yet, still have realistic flaws. I want to see more protagonists who can be role models to young girls and women. So, I decided to write about them.
My books focus more about the protagonist's character growth and less about the love interest(s). That's more important than whoever she falls in love with and whether it works out. Falling in love with yourself should always be a priority. My books capture the journeys of these empowering characters finding their way and falling in love with themselves (and a love interest) in the process.
I've taken from the real-life experiences of myself, my friends, and my family to create each plot I've written. Though, I'll be honest. Some of the plots I've written are also fantasies of mine I've always wanted to act out in real life but never could. Isn't that the reason why we read? Well, it's also one of the many reasons why I write.
