Let’s get down to brass tacks. Why do you write?

A: I grew up consuming stories in every format I could get my hands on (comics, books, TV, video games, movies, etc.), and decided early on I wanted to tell my own stories. I told my kid brother a lot when we were growing up, and I kept wanting to tell more.

F: I always liked making things up in my head and going on amazing adventures with characters I’ve read about, or the imaginary people I created all on my own. It just seemed like a natural progression.
