No, I am very familiar with the medical condition I chose to write about as myself, a member of my family and several of my friends suffer with.

Is there any one thing you have to have when writing?

My laptop. ;) a cup of tea because my hands get cold when I'm writing.

Everyday life, dreams, books, people I meet or see.

Bully by Penelope Douglas. It was the first indie book I ever read and its one I reread over and over. It's one of my absolute favourite books by her, along with Punk 57 and for me, both of those have a powerful message. Words have power <3
