One of the major themes of Summer Twilight is exploring the labels we give ourselves, and how they affect the way we view the world, and the way the world sees us in turn. Throughout this journey, I will share some of my own labels, and the journey they have taken me on. We are all #morethanourlabels
I've never really thought of myself as creative until recently. A big part of the reason is because both my mom and my little brother are artists, so growing up my definition of creative meant you had to draw, paint, or sculpt. My drawing abilities begin and end with stick figures; I can color inside the lines in coloring books, but I do better with color-by-number because I'm never sure what goes together.
I wrote a book simply because I had no other choice. Okay, maybe it's a little bit more complicated, but that's what is boils down to. One day, Alex and Caidy came to visit me, and they never left. They had a story to tell - an incredibly complex and winding story full of adventure and intrigue - and once I started listening, I knew I had to write it down.
I promise I'm no crazier than you are. I know that Alex and Caidy are fictional characters, but as I think any author will tell you, our characters feel as real to us as you do. I know Alex and Caidy's secrets and their struggles, their goals and hopes and fears. And once they started talking to me about their lives, I realized there was so much important in them which needed to be shared.
