About a Girl follows one young man’s journey of self-discovery while growing up in California in the 90’s as he navigates love, friendship and betrayal. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?
The inspiration for About a Girl was based on my own experience in high school.
Will is a compelling character. What were some driving ideals behind his character’s development?
I wanted Will to represent the average teenager in the 1990’s. I also wanted the reader to see Will’s motivation with numerous flashbacks.
What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?
Trust, loyalty, friendship, and forgiveness.
What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?
I’m currently writing Hannah, (working title) a hybrid prequel/sequel to About a Girl told from Hannah’s point of view. It will be available in the summer of 2023.
