You know, one of my fears about living alone so long is that you get used to doing everything your own way.
Can't nothing make your life work if you ain't the architect.
I'm more interested in interpersonal relationships - between lovers families, siblings. That's why I write about how we treat each other.
I don't live my life as a writer. I'm a mother, an African-American woman, and I do everything that everybody else does - cook and a little bit of cleaning.
I just believe that young people need to be able to learn how to write in their own voice. Just like a musician, you pride yourself on having your own distinct sound.
