I write the fantastical and dreamy, grounded in reality. I love brushing against the magic silks as I go through the day–driving into work in the first licks of dawn, watching my breath as I walk along the canal at lunch, hearing the trees whisper as I roll out the green and black bins full of the debris of our existence. I am certain that given a chance, I would get lost in the silks and find the way to the other worlds. But I am ultimately too practical, and I have a brilliant boy with curious eyes to guide through this world.
